After nearly half a year of being homebound in 2021, theatres are clamouring to find inventive ways to get people back in the seats. One unique experience which is bound to pique your interest is the Wonderdome — a 360-degree pop up cinema built at the Entertainment Quarter in Moore Park which promises a cinematic experience like no other.
Presented by TEG live, the Wonderdome cinema has been around the world and been quite the crowd-pleaser at massive events like Coachella and Burning Man. Promising a virtual reality experience without the goggles, it blends immersive visuals and cutting-edge technology to create a transformative multisensory experience. The dome uses 12 projectors and a surround sound system so the word ‘immersive’ is not used loosely.
Co-Founder Chris Deckker says that at Wonderdome “the boundaries of the screen are dissolved, allowing the viewer to become part of the film.”
“Viewers are immersed into multiple worlds, from thrilling rides through galaxies to emotive journeys navigating natural landscapes,” he adds.
Australia’s largest-ever 360-degree immersive cinema is now in it’s final week and there is still some time to catch a show.
The line-up includes the Australian production of Coral Rekindling Venus. You can also expect the David Attenborough-narrated Flying Monsters — quite literally about a flying monster, the pterosaurs. Psychedelic experience Samskara is also in the offing filled with magical creatures and mind-bending visuals. There will also be a children’s program including a Christmas-themed show Snowflake Adventure, so rest assured there’s something for everyone.

That’s not all. The venue comes with a number of delish food and beverage options including hot jaffles, chips, chocolates, slushies, ice-creams, a gin bar and craft beers.
