Now Celebrating 35 Years of Creating Astronomical & Entertainment Content for Planetariums
Thanks to all who came to the DSOM special, all the shows were packed wall to wall, we had a really fun night!
Now it’s back to shooting 360 Fulldome video, programming laser imagery, and creating animation for the next show! Stay tuned for progress and opening date info on…
VidLaser Radiohead as never seen before, will feature the best of Radiohead over the years with 360° real-world, real-time Fulldome video, multiple RGB diode lasers, both classic analog and digital star projectors, and immersive full concert sound in our new deep space dome at Burnaby’s BCIT Planetarium.
The New Projector Monster 180 Lens
We have just designed and created a new Fulldome 360 video projection system for our VidLaser shows at the BCIT Planetarium that will give us brighter, more colorful, and smoother imagery.
We will resume our full weekly show schedule when we have finished producing our new VidLaser RADIOHEAD show. Dark Side Of The Moon will also remain in the show lineup. Until then the theatre will be used for production only (except for specials).
Just confirmed that we’ll be working with trippy Vancouver digital animator UON Visuals to create some Fulldome 360 imagery for our new RADIOHEAD 2016 show!
We’re in our new location, the BCIT Planetarium, 3700 Willingdon Ave. Building SW3, in Burnaby. Enter off Willingdon and follow the signs.
Tickets will be available at the door when we reopen. Advance tickets will be also be available on Eventbrite. Some tickets will be held back for door sales.
Our New Place for Space!
Like the Seattle Laser shows, the new dome in Montreal, and the popular stage area in our last venue, we recommend reclining on the carpet with the theatre cushions. Seating is available in the rear.
Enter @ 3700 Willingdon, turn right, and follow the signs. If possible check seating before parking.
After three years of innovative development, production, and upgrading, Roundhouse laser and light shows are back! Thanks Vancouver for inspiring us to create new productions techniques and for asking us to bring the shows back to our home town.
Stay tuned for new astronomy shows coming in the future.
One of the companies that has been very supportive in our push to develop new Fulldome show technologies has been Vancouver’s own IZ Radar and we have been fortunate to work with IZ Radar over many years. Just for fun, go to the link, and on the right, click on “Who records with IZ”… Basically everyone…. from Pink Floyd, to U2, to Tony Bennett, to Beck.
Four years ago we developed and began shooting with the worlds first camera rig designed from scratch with Planetarium production in mind that uses set screw alignment for shooting and stitching real-world real-time 4K FullDome video.
Here’s an example of our new 4k real-world real-time Fulldome video, shot with our Roundhouse Rig 5 camera array

Thank you Vancouver for record breaking attendance for over 3 decades.
Thanks everyone for all your continuing inquiries and email.
After 33 great years of successful shows from Rachmaninoff to Radiohead, from the Beatles to the Beastie Boys, and from the Poppy Family to Pink Floyd, Roundhouse productions would like to thank the people of Vancouver for their overwhelming support through the years, and also the bands that have played in our Live In Space series. You know it’s been a long run when we often have people in the shows whose parents’ first date was at our laser shows. We are excited to be continuing the shows with our new technology in our new Planetarium.
Here’s some of our PAST Roundhouse shows…Who would you like to see next after Dark Side?… Metric?… Bowie? You can call it…let us know!
Roundhouse Laser Zeppelin features classics like WHOLE LOTTA LOVE, STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN, THE IMMIGRANT SONG & much more, all choreographed in the deep space dome to create an amazing extravaganza of sound & light.
