The Vortex Dome™ is the first commercial immersive media live performance and events venue located in downtown Los Angeles on the Los Angeles Center Studios lot. The 50’ diameter 360-degree cinema theater accommodates 150 removable seats, has an 18’ x 24’ modular stage, 20k lumen Barco DLP projectors and 5.1 surround sound.

The Vortex Dome™ also serves as an immersive media innovation lab and 360 production studio. Activities include 360 product development, test marketing of dome films and live shows, experiments with 360 creative and performance techniques, group/client screenings and reviews of 360/VR immersive content.

We provide a private showcase reception the last Wednesday of each month.  To get on a list for a demo please sign up for our newsletter.  The Vortex Dome™ is available for rentals and custom events.  Please contact us for more information.
