|Historical Notes||In 1962, guests to the United States Science Pavilion at the Seattle World's Fair began their experience with a 15-minute film entitled <i>The House of Science<i>, a multi-projector installation featuring a 360-degree screen known as the Cyclorama. Commissioned by the U.S. Government, <i>The House of Science<i> was created by famed designers Charles and Ray Eames to highlight the scientific achievements of man in the 20th Century while looking ahead to technological innovations expected by Century 21. This innovative theater space was transformed in 1979 with the introduction of the first IMAX projection system in Washington state. In 2010, the U.S. Science Pavilion (now known as the Pacific Science Center), including the interior of the Eames IMAX Theater, was designated a City of Seattle Landmark. |
