The Bubble Theatre at City of Dreams in Macau features an immersive, 360-degree multimedia production that uses a complex AV system of projectors and lighting effects to take audiences on an underwater adventure.

Next month, the Themed Entertainment Association will celebrate the 16th annual THEA awards at Universal Studios, Hollywood, honoring 12 themed environment projects from across the globe. TEA President Steve Thorburn points out that the predominant theme this year is a maturation in the use of technology. "We've mastered the seamless and transparent blend of media and technology ... all in the service of storytelling."
