The Universal Sphere at the Comcast Technology Center

A Free Family Fun Cinematic Experience

Check out The Universal Sphere's new short film entitled "The Power of I" which was created by Steven Spielberg, DreamWorks Animation, Universal Parks and Resorts and Comcast Labs (which is building tomorrow's technologies right here in Philly). Located on the second floor lobby of the Comcast Technology Center, this free, cinematic experience explores the power of ideas and is a great family friendly activity for locals and visitors alike. The Power of I experience takes about 15 minutes, and it is presented in a 360-degree dome theater. The Universal Sphere is open to the public, and film runs throughout the day, Monday-Friday from 10AM-5PM.

Go behind the scenes with the creative minds who developed The Universal Sphere about the power to explore ideas of all sizes which have shaped our world.

When looking at the outside of The Universal Sphere which is 34-feet tall and 39-feet in diameter, Epcot's Spaceship Earth at Walt Disney World may come to mind, but The Universal Sphere is totally different -- it's free, it's inside, and it's located in Philadelphia where the power of thought, expression and ideas helped catalyze the birth of our nation back in 1776 at Independence Hall (one of the sites featured along The Constitutional Walking Tour). If Benjamin Franklin were alive in 2019, he would have loved The Power of I in talking about innovation and design.
