FORT COLLINS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Stand in the middle of a redwood forest, chase balloons along Sesame Street or plunge past volcanoes on the surface of Venus -- all in the 85-seat, 360-degree OtterBox Digital Dome Theater at the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery. Funded by a $1.3 million donation from Fort Collins, Colo. case manufacturer OtterBox®, the OtterBox Digital Dome Theater is one of the premier experiences at the newly opened Fort Collins Museum of Discovery, located at 408 Mason Court, Fort Collins, Colo. Through the local company’s enthusiastic support, the OtterBox Digital Dome Theater brings inspirational adventures to visitors from the Northern Colorado region and throughout the world.

“Features like the OtterBox Digital Dome Theater help categorize Fort Collins as a progressive and innovative community,” OtterBox Founder and Chairman Curt Richardson said. “It’s important to educate youth and inspire them to constantly learn and grow. We are privileged to have a part in facilitating that throughout Fort Collins.”

The OtterBox Digital Dome Theater is an immersive, 85-seat, 360-degree theater space where the mysteries of the Universe or the delicate mechanisms of the cell unfold around the viewer. Much more than a traditional planetarium, the state-of-the-art high-resolution projection and sound systems creates a high-impact venue for the exploration of astronomy, biology, paleontology, earth and climate science, as well as natural and cultural history, music, art, and a host of other subjects. The possibilities for engaging and inspiring audiences are limitless.

A small stage at the front of the theatre could even offer opportunities for young musicians with an arena venue surrounding them or a couple to be wed on Mars.

“We are so grateful for this support,” Fort Collins Museum of Discovery Co-Director Annette Geiselman said. “Their commitment to this project has been remarkable,” Fort Collins Museum of Discovery Co-Director Cheryl Donaldson added.

Films with new adventures will be rotated in the coming months, current features include: Cosmic Journey: A Solar System Adventure; Life: A Cosmic Story; Dynamic Earth; National Geographic’s Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure; and One World, One Sky: Big Bird’s Adventure. All films are shown Tuesday - Sunday, passes can be purchased at the ticket desk.
