Pavilion Spotlight: CineDome is the only one of its kind

Posted: Updated:

As Washington Pavilion's VP of Operations Jon Loos describes, "Most people probably don't have any clue of what level of cutting edge we are at this facility."

So, what can a CineDome patron expect?
 
"You can expect the largest image in the world on a dome screen with 4,000 lines of resolution. A very immersive experience. If you sit down in front of the lens you'll have video wrapped around you," said Loos.

Last year, Loos and his staff researched life after film. They knew the digital era was coming.

"When we heard that taking place we saw an opportunity and a challenge and thought we could make it work better," said Loos.

So, they figured out how to use a giant projector to present in image on the Dome in an efficient and enjoyable way.

"When the camera takes a ride and goes down the cliff. You go down the cliff," said Loos.

An unwillingness to be satisfied has moved Loos onto his latest project - providing closed captioning to the audience.

"We're going to demo a set of glasses, and the glasses will actually have the closed captioning on the glasses. So, as you're looking through these glasses you'll see the words."

An adapted screen in a cup holder is another option.

Regardless what Loos determines is best, he's committed to being a change initiator in the world of CineDomes.

The CineDome will begin showing holiday films soon. For show times click on this link: https://www.washingtonpavilion.org/Online/default.asp?doWork::WScontent::loadArticle=Load&BOparam::WScontent::loadArticle::article_id=427B14BA-71E4-4106-8300-3EB65DFAA981
