Moviedrome: The Search for Total Theatre, 1963, by Stan Vanderbreek
Influenced by Buckminster Fuller’s spheres, VanDerBeek had the idea for a spherical theater where people would lie down and experience movies all around them. Floating multi-images would replace straight one-dimensional film projection. From 1957 on, VanDerBeek produced film sequences for the Movie-Drome, which he started building in 1963. His intention went far beyond the building itself and moved into the surrounding biosphere, the cosmos, the brain and even extraterrestrial intelligence.

OMA’s PRADA Transformer in cinema mode, I’ve never seen inside it before. It’s totally sci-fi, like Blade Runner or 12 Monkeys.
