The History Dome Theater

San Diego, CA

    A One-of-A-Kind Journey

    The centerpiece experience of the newly opened Legacy International Center is the unique 100-seat, 4-D motion History Dome Theater designed to transport visitors to the ancient Holy Land of Jerusalem. The theater is equipped with state-of-the-art motion sensory seats (used for the first time in North America) and a seamless 360-degree immersive screen to fully capture the audience's attention.

    This unique full-range motion sensory experience features the Wings Over Israel film. The 4-D SFX Motion seats match the exact movement on the screen and engage all the senses, making for an unforgettable experience. In addition to the motion, special effects include wind, audio, lighting effects, seat vibration, poke effect, leg tickler, fog, water, and fragrances. This was the first time such a compact yet high-performance system had been installed, including all of the video alignments. The state-of-the-art auto-alignment system measures the dome's geometry accurately to a millimeter and adjusts the film sequences perfectly to the shape, bringing the motion experience to life.

    The History Dome Theater is the central attraction at the Morris Cerullo Legacy International Center, where guests can look forward to an Interactive Globe and the Meet Morris and Theresa Theater at the Welcome Center. Other activities include taking a journey through Israel's catacombs and exploring a replica of the Wailing Wall. The Legacy of Nations Exhibits and Nations Bazaar also add an element of education to the center. As a whole, The Legacy International Center, with its one-of-a-kind 4-D History Theater Dome is a unique themed experience that sets a bar for excellence previously unseen in its sector.
