Immersive Theartres

About Us

Who are we and what do we do?

Immersive Theatres is a mobile digital planetarium service for all ages specialising in astronomy, cross-curricular learning, new media art, entertainment and exploration of the 360˚ digital medium.

We offer the largest catalogue of digital planetarium films in the world (over 150 titles), together with presenter-led astronomy shows delivered by engaging and experienced science communicators. Our customer feedback pages speak for themselves.

Immersive Theatres utilises the very latest fulldome 360˚ projection technology, yet our prices are among the most competitive in the UK eg. a school visit with our 7m dome can work out to only £1.25 per student. Travel is only 35p / mile and there is no VAT to pay.

Owner and director Mario Di Maggio (BSc, PGCE) has 20 years experience with digital domes and planetariums, both fixed and mobile. He launched and for eight years managed the UK`s first purpose-built digital planetarium (Thinktank Science Museum, Birmingham, 2005-2013), as well as launched and for three years managed the UK`s most expensive planetarium (Glasgow Science Centre, 2001-2004). Mario has worked as a consultant for the Macao Planetarium (China, 2004-2008) and the Peter Harrison Planetarium (London, 2005). Additional planetarium experience includes At-Bristol (Bristol, 2000) and Armagh Planetarium (Northern Ireland, 2000-2001). Before that, Mario launched and managed one of South Africa's first interactive science centre networks (KwaZuzulwazi in Durban, 1992-1999), as well as a 'simulated' planetarium at the Durban Natural Science Museum (1998-1999).
