Visit the Mayborn Science Theater on the campus of Central Texas College in Killeen Texas and immerse yourself in a state-of-the-art experience like no other.
Embark on an imaginary journey through time and space. Our new million dollar, full-scale digital upgrade has created a full-dome display and allows for more entertainment opportunities. The upgrade, performed by Global Immersion of the United Kingdom, includes a five-channel Fidelity Bright full-dome solution employing a wide range of exciting technologies to allow the facility to support its extensive and diverse show programming in the 60-foot dome.
Experience a unique and artistic mix of light, color and sound. Laser light shows combine eye-popping 3D graphics, pure laser-generated colors and 15,000-watts of digitally reproduced sound to bring your favorite music to life. Treat yourself to the most impressive motion picture available presented on a dome-shaped screen, more than twice as large as traditional movie screens.
