The Cinerama Dome opened at 6360 Sunset Blvd in 1963 as a prototype for what was intended to be hundreds of geodesic dome theatres, but the others were never built. The 900 seat theatre has a 32 by 86 foot curved screen. It is still under the auspices of Pacific Theatres, who have refurbished the original dome and surrounded it with a new building which includes additional theatres, a cafe bar and gift shop, offices, a gym and parking structure.
