SESQUI Cinematic Dome Tour
July 16 – July 20
In partnership with Ontario150 and the City of Sault Ste. Marie, SESQUI will bring its immersive cinematic dome to Sault Ste. Marie as its fourth city in its summer tour, with free screenings of the 360° film HORIZON. The 80-seat dome will be located in Station Mall and exhibit HORIZON 21 times per day from Sunday, July 16th to Thursday, July 20th, 2017.
The cutting edge cinematic dome will offer audiences of all ages a true 360° immersive experience of the 22-minute film HORIZON, with scenes shot in every province and territory, showcasing Canada’s awe-inspiring landscapes, diversity of perspectives, artistic talents and the people that call Canada home. The film features over 380 on-screen performers and a soundtrack of both original and contemporary Canadian music.
Designed to inspire and captivate, HORIZON is a visually stunning journey through Canada that will amplify the senses, giving audiences a front row seat to the wonders of our country. Participants will take a ride on an illuminated dragon boat on the Rideau Canal and be enveloped by the spectacular Northern Lights, among 90 other breathtaking scenes.
All admission is free and lineups are first come, first serve.
