The theatre is 18 metre in diameter and it is set up in a dome-shaped building with a seating capacity of 125 persons. The 25-minute film shows what worst can happen if humans do not take action on current or impending problems which could threaten civilization.
The film starts by giving a glimpse of future - floods, droughts, earthquakes and other natural disasters. Then Earth introduces itself and talks to the audience about current situation and impacts it is experiencing due to global warming.
