LAMPS OF ATLANTIS Now Available for Fulldome Theaters from Evans & Sutherland and the Eugenides Foundation

Salt Lake City, USA — Audiences will be able to explore the legend of the lost continent of Atlantis in the new show, Lamps of Atlantis, produced exclusively for digital fulldome theaters.  A coproduction between Evans & Sutherland’s award-winning Digital Theater Productions and the Eugenides Foundation planetarium in Athens, Greece, Lamps of Atlantis explores the mythology of Atlantis and investigates clues to the origin of the names of modern constellations that may have come from this mysterious civilization.  This detective story promises to keep viewers fascinated and intrigued as the various pieces of evidence fall into place.
Narrated by Terry O’Quinn, who played John Locke on TV’s hit show, LOST, Lamps of Atlantis features fulldome time-lapse photography from striking locations around the world including Easter Island, Australia, Egypt, South America and Greece. The show also features computer animation visualizations of a number of international locations and the stars and constellations of the night sky.

A 40 minute version of the show is available now, and a shorter, approximately 25 minute cut of the show is set for release in late December 2011.  For users of Evans & Sutherland Digistar systems, the fulldome trailer is available for download on the DUG library.  For more information about the show and to see a trailer, visit the Lamps of Atlantis website
