 Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Novo Theatre
(Which was Bhashani Novo Theatre / Vasani Novo Theater)
How would it be if all the galaxies, planets and asteroids were brought about in a room, just before one's eyes, where one

could watch their movements in a lively image?

It would be an absolutely thrilling experience no doubt, The development of modern science and technology has finally enabled us to experience just that in our own country. Recently, the 'Space Theatre' at the turning point of Bijoy Sorani, Dhaka has undergone . Its completion.

The Ministry of Science, Information and communication Technology in Bangladesh built the theatre under a Development Project. The architectural design was also provided by the ministry.

The Dhaka Bhasani Novo Theatre has aroused a great deal of curiosity amongst the general public. Some have imagined it to be a theatre promoting the cultural arts while it is in fact a theatre built in order to promote astronomy. The planetarium displays the solar systems through a special projector and enables us to gain a wider knowledge of outer space and our galactic well as learn more about stars, their names, movements etc. with the help of scientifically powerful projector inside the planetarium, the astronomical shows are displayed on a large curved domed screen on the celling. This curved ceiling represents the sky and shows moving images of plants and starts through a projection onto a large-screen dome at an angle of 120 degrees. At the time of projection, the planetary system is also for the better understanding of the spectators, interpreted in both Bengali and English.

Bangladesh lags behind in awareness and knowledge of astronomy compared to the rest of the world. This is because our country is not so well equipped with the modern technology as most countries are. Advanced countries in the world have a large number of planetariums to provide their people with this form of Edu-entertainment. Dhaka Bhasani Novo Theatre will now be allowing this same privilege to the general public of Bangladesh .

It is simply a matter of time before the required equipment is fully installed inside the planetarium. Its opening ceremony is to be launched at the end of this year. Many are eagerly awaiting the inauguration of this space theatre. This will greatly contribute towards wider knowledge and stronger awareness of astronomy, a less recognized subject of interest in Bangladesh . This is a most excellent way of encouraging young minds and catering to the Needs of the interested public.

Displayed in Novo Theatre:
1) Planetarium show
2) Ride Simulator
3) 3-D film show
