The Origins 3D Theatre provides its audience with a unique view of the elements of life and the universe. Presented with a special projector and complex stereo sound-system, shows in the theatre are prime examples of innovation in education.

Located in the Michael DeGroote Centre for Learning and Discovery (MDCL) Room 1110, the theatre seats 144 persons and doubles as standard lecture space. Its 3D technology is based upon (i) a dual-projector system that presents two seperate images (one for each eye) to simulate the 3D effect visually, and (ii) a surround-sound stereo system to convey the audio effect.

The theatre held its intensely popular first show, 'The Sun - What a Star' over the course of several nights in the 2006-2007 OI lecture season. A new show is planned for the 2007-08 season, and more are in development. Stay tuned to the OI website!
