Salt Lake City, UT, USA — To add some scientific perspective to the 2012 doomsday conversation, E&S Digital Theater Productions has produced a brand new fulldome show called 2012: Ancient Skies Ancient Mysteries. And for a limited time, E&S is offering discounted pricing for customers who license their new 2012 show, along with Houston Museum of Natural Science’s show, 2012: Mayan Prophecies.
2012: Ancient Skies Ancient Mysteries. Centered around the legends and mysteries ancient cultures saw in the night sky, 2012: Ancient Skies Ancient Mysteries is a 25 minute show that explores the knowledge these people discovered and the importance of their connection with the stars. Audiences will see common threads to these observations across cultures and see just how close the ancient Greeks came to our current astronomical understanding, and ask whether or not the Maya actually predicted the end of the world on December 21st, 2012.
