Experience

This unique movie theatre is designed to transport you to another world. The big-screen films take you to space, where you can meet the astronauts of the International Space Station, and bring you face-to-face with the most fascinating scenery and creatures on Earth. And all without having to leave your seat. You don’t just watch a film, you become part of it!

Films

The films are in Dutch but a special app lets you follow the original English-language version using your own mobile phone and headset. A new film starts every hour. The films are suitable for all ages, unless specified otherwise. Some young children may find the large screen and sound system rather overwhelming.

What a great experience and beautiful nature! It felt like I was there myself.

Technique

To project on the 840 m2 dome we need an unbelievably good digital projector. In fact, not 1, but 5 incredibly good projectors. Spread across the theater are five 4K laser projectors from the Christie brand that, together with advanced software from the American company Evans & Sutherland, form the ESX projection system.

Those 5 laser sources are needed to get enough light on the dome. The combination of the 5 projectors also ensures that the image is made up of 25 million pixels.

A warm welcome and nice to sit and drink a cup of coffee before the film.

To make an Omniversum film, special IMAX cameras are used and can only record for 3 minutes. Making an IMAX film is a time-consuming project. On average, people spend around 2 years working on a film and production costs rise to 12 million euros. But it gives the visitors a special experience every time!
