Budweiser Gardens Lot
SESQUI will be spending the extended Canada Day weekend with its travelling cinematic dome tour in London. SESQUI’s 360° dome will be located on the grounds of the Budweiser Gardens parking lot, which is also part of part of the city’s five-day SesquiFest, featuring a synthetic ice rink and performances in the Covent Garden Market Square.
SESQUI’s HORIZON 360° film will be projected in 9K resolution. The film is approximately 22 minutes in length, and will be screened every half hour in our custom-built SESQUI dome.
All admission is free and lineups are first come, first serve.
