Three-Dimensional Artifacts
The Circlorama Theatre in Piccadilly Circus, London, surrounded audiences with a 360⁰ viewing experience, using 11 projectors on 11 screens. It appears to have been in business for only two years, from 1963 to 1964. It reappeared briefly at Blackpool Central Pier in 1965.
The typography of the button's phrase "I have seen Circlorama" imitates the 360⁰ band of the theater's screen. The words are printed in red, on a white background.
