      I don't think its an issue of being narrow-minded..remember this sort of thing (sans the moveable dome) has been tried before. Spitz built a number of classroom type planetariums. It was always my impression that these were not all that successful. The chairs, which had to tilt, made a lot of noise and often broke, plus school groups made a lot of noise messing around with the folding tabletops. Then there's the issue Sharon brought up.

      Sometimes if you make to many compromises when it comes to multipurpose spaces, you end up with a space that is not really good for any of its purposes.

      The sooner we get out of the attitude that Full Dome projection is the preserve of planetariums the better. We need to start thinking sideways, and use the old marketing question - "what is the business of the business"
