SANTA FE – A town that not so long ago had to live without any movie theaters may be about to make up for lost time in a big way.Los Alamos is a front runner to become the location for the world’s first Immersive Visualization Theater.Peter Rogina, president of WorldScape Inc., said he has begun discussions with Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation with an eye to installing a new multi-dimensional immersion facility in the Research Park. The theater would be located outside the security perimeter and adjacent to the main administrative buildings at Los Alamos National Laboratory.Rogina said the theater could be a major new attraction for the county.“To use a Star Wars analogy,” he said, “it would be the world’s first holodeck.” The holodeck, a geek icon, enabled crewmembers in the television series to fuse imagination and reality.Rogina appeared on a panel Saturday presented by the Santa Fe Film Festival on “Entering the Third Dimension,” about new 3-D media technologies.Moderator Peter Warzel, senior vice president of Veriana Networks, introduced the participants and what he called the “hot topic” and “hot product” of the hour, 3-D and immersive imaging technologies.“These technologies are moving beyond the big screen, conceptually, if not in fact,” he said.
