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.
Two years ago we developed and began shooting with a new 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!
