The lightest domed cinema makes it possible to immerse yourself in the world of the oceans.
In order to dive into the sea, visitors who wear safety vest first have to look up: the ceiling is arched, from there up sparse daylight penetrates down into the deep sea, which surrounds the visitors. Fish and jellyfish streak past, and suddenly one is in the middle of the experience ocean. The fact that you can keep dry during the exciting dive is due to the modern technology: the ground is a 360-degree film projection, with a planetary dome on all sides.
The Koppel Kino belongs to the Helmholtz Center, Center for material and Coastal Research. It is inflatable like a bouncy castle and thus extremely easy for a cinema. Only 100 square meters of free space is required to build it, one day working time and one hydrant, because the dome does not blow away, it is held on the ground with a water ballast of eight tons. A reflective fabric for the projection is sucked in on the inside - and the temporary round-the-screen cinema, which can hold up to 35 spectators, is finished.
The airy design is mostly on the road to give viewers the opportunity to gain insight into the work of scientists all over Germany. Currently, a film about the so-called small marine vertebrates is running in the Koppel zest. Until recently they were unknown; In the meantime, researchers have found that they have a significant influence on fish stocks, the transport of energy in the oceans, the great turbulence in the world's oceans and the climate. However, other films are also conceivable for the inflatable dome cinema: people like to stay in the cinema are to be able to look virtually into reflective materials and enter molecules.
