VR Dome Theater – Vortex Immersion Media
Event planners are aware that you want to create an event where you can take people to the heart of your story. With old technology, you have about a minute to grab your audience’s attention before they start looking down at their devices.

What if you could harness the power of people’s sensory inputs and take them on an immersive, multisensory journey? Setting the stage for eclectic storytelling performances, the Vortex Dome™ — an iconic projection mapping dome at Los Angeles Center Studios — has been doing just that, since 2010.

Storytelling in a projection mapping dome isn’t something you can experience at home or on any flat surface display. By weaving the magic of storytelling onto the dome’s non-flat surface with awesome visual presentations, a 360° projection mapping dome shapes images that draw audiences from far and wide.

Located in the heart of downtown LA, Vortex Dome™ is the first immersive commercial event tent to host a wide variety of large-scale arts & entertainment co-productions, including live stage shows and fine arts 360° cinema theater performances. The 50’ diameter dome accommodates 150 removable seats, has an 18’ x 24’ modular stage, 20K lumen Baco DLP projectors and 5.1 surround sound.
