July 22, 2021—After a 14-month closure for its largest ever renovation,
the Space Theatre of the Hong Kong Space Museum, which has been
thrilling audiences since its inception in 1980, reopened on July 1,
2021. The major part of the renovation was the replacement of the
23-metre-diameter dome screen with a new one comprising 428 aluminum
panels that are less than 1mm thick. The panels utilize the latest
NanoSeam technology and offer a seamless viewing experience. The screen,
together with the six new Christie Mirage 304 projectors, produce
sharper and more colorful images. Other facilities of the Space Theatre,
including the newly installed Sky-Skan DigitalSky–Dark Matter
projection system, audio and sound equipment, the control and production
studios have all been upgraded with cutting-edge technologies to
provide audiences with exhilarating audiovisual experiences.
