WA Museum has partnered with Fremantle documentary company, Prospero Productions, to bring you an immersive cinema experience Under the Dome.

Look to the stars and take a breathtaking journey through science and Aboriginal culture with Star Dreaming – fusing live action with cutting edge technology and astrophysics. Follow as two children go on a magical odyssey through time and space, exploring the mysteries of the Universe and the ancient stories of Yamaji people from the Murchison region.

In the arid heartland of the Murchison region of Western Australia, Max Winton and Lucia Richardson visit the remote site of the Square Kilometre Array, or SKA, radio telescope. There, they learn about the beginnings of time and space and the life cycle of stars. Entering the ancient land of the Yamaji people, they meet with artists and their guide, Charmaine Green. She introduces them to other Yamaji artists, who share through their paintings ancient star stories that have been passed on from generation to generation for thousands of years.

Come with us and see just how much the scientific world and one of the oldest surviving cultures have in common – we all live under one sky, a shared sky.

Screening daily

Star Dreaming is screening daily, with a 25-minute or an extended 45-minute version on offer. The dome cinema is air-conditioned and has two seats that can be removed to accommodate one wheelchair.

Visit Under the Dome as part of your fun Victoria Quay day out.
