    May 18, 2012: America the Beautiful in Circarama

    This presentation puts you “in the middle of everything.” Eleven movie screens form a circle above your head. Eleven perfectly synchronized projectors show eleven 16mm films, surrounding you with a 360-degree travelogue.




    Please discuss it here.

    Thanks, Werner! Outstanding!
    At the risk of sounding like Varuca Salt,
    I want to see every Circarama and Circlevision movie (twice)
    made in the 1970s and before!

    Add "rama" to any word and I'm sold.

    Excellent article and loved the vintage photos of Tomorrowland. I was always a fan of ATB, but actually preferred American Journeys. Still miss it and wish there was a way they could fit it into alternate showings in Epcot, even though the theatres are in Canada and China!

    I was too young to catch America the Beautiful, but I have very fond memories of Magic Carpet 'Round the World.

    Speaking of America the Beautiful, wasn't there going to be a new dining location/presentation somewhere in Tomorrowland?

    It's really awesome that Walt submitted a patent for the circlerama camera on top of Ecto-1. That was really visionary!
