Immersive Theartres

Why Choose Us?

 Eight Reasons to Choose Us

  1. Quality over quantity - we don't overfill our domes, ensuring everyone in the audience enjoys an excellent view. Modern mobile digital planetariums are unidirectional and the audience should not be seated further forward than about half way.

  2. We utilise separate video displays - so you won’t see unsightly laptop icons projected on the dome.

  3. We use five audio speakers - thereby filling our domes with proper left-right stereo.

  4. Our domes are accessible - meaning we easily accommodate wheelchair users as well as the elderly and infirm ie. it's not necessary to crawl into our domes.

  5. More programming choice - with over 150 titles, our fulldome (360°) catalogue is the largest in the world. Yes, the world.

  6. More dome sizes - our 4m, 5m, 6m and 7m dome options ensure we have a planetarium for almost every indoor space, audience size and budget.

  7. Quality certified - we are the first (and currently only) UK mobile planetarium operator to hold the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge.

  8. Recommended - we have more 5-star Google, Facebook, YellTrustPilot, Yelp and STEM Directories online reviews than any other UK operator, as well as numerous web pages brimming with up-to-date customer reviews.

 

Additional Reasons to Choose Us

Due to an increase in fly-by-night mobile planetarium operators, we feel it's our duty to point out the following:

  • Fake Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) Certificates - unfortunately these are becoming more common. Always ask to see the original DBS certificate together with a document proving photographic identity. Additional helpful advice can be found here.


  • Fake Social Media Profiles - some operators purchase large numbers of bogus social media followers eg. note the geographical location of our Facebook followers (left) compared to those of two UK competitors (right):

  • Soliciting Online Reviews - it is a guideline violation of platforms like Google and Tripadvisor to request an online review in return for a discount or opportunity to win a prize.

  • Selling Fake Products - don't be fooled into buying 'genuine' Astronaut Ice Cream or similar gimmick products. Freeze-dried 'astronaut ice cream' has never flown in space. Since 1972 astronauts have had freezers on-board and therefore always enjoyed real ice cream.

  • Undercharging - look out for mobile planetarium operators charging surprisingly low prices and even offering free bookings. Such business practices border on illegal Predatory Pricing and are attempts to draw customers away from established businesses.

  • Impressive-looking Letters - postnomen letters (fancy letters after an individual’s name) aren’t necessarily something to be overly impressed by:

    • MInstP (Member of the Institute of Physics) - simply means the individual is a member of the Institute of Physics. Anyone with a degree in physics and three years work experience can become a member.

    • FRAS (Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society) - simply means the individual is a member of the Royal Astronomical Society. Anyone working in an astronomy-related field can become a member. Immersive Theatres director Mario Di Maggio became a FRAS in May 2004 but decided the £110 annual renewal fee wasn't worth it.

    • FBIS (Fellow of the British Interplanetary Society) - simply means the individual is a fellow of the British Interplanetary Society. Anyone can become a member of the Society and then after three years anyone working in an astronautics-related field, or anyone making a significant contribution to the work of the Society, can become a fellow.
