The Zeidler Dome
Edmonton was home to Canada’s first public planetarium, the Queen Elizabeth Planetarium, which opened in 1960. It delighted audiences until it was replaced in 1984 by the stunning Margaret Zeidler Star Theatre in the Edmonton Space Sciences Centre. In its day, it was state of the art.
Edmonton’s immersive full dome experience!
To re-establish Edmonton as a world leader in this area, the domed theatre has been transformed into a 21st-century digital visualization theatre, connecting scientific research with computer visualization and 10k resolution to help us understand how the universe works.
The entire theatre brings cutting-edge technology into a space worthy of the visualization content that is the theatre’s signature experience and leaves a lasting impression on all of its guests.
