Inflatable spherical pavilions of different size were used as cinema halls at the festival Green Carnation. Thanks to this technology part of Sochi street space was turned into unique spherical cinema halls, which at the same time created unique scenery with visual art objects. The most state-of-the-art technology Full Dome Theatre was used for this purpose.
