Summer Light Spectacular
At Westfield San Francisco Centre, a nightly light show projected onto the mall’s iconic dome is expected to be a huge draw.
The center, owned by Westfield, will be showcasing a one-of-a-kind animated 3D light spectacular, called The Heart of San Francisco, which will run nightly on Level 4 Under the Dome from July 11 through Sept. 3.
Featuring iconic San Francisco images, the free show will be projected on the Centre’s 102-ft.-wide dome and set to a collection of San Francisco songs.
Westfield is erecting a pop-up Park Under the Dome, decked with lawn chairs and showcasing a replica of the bridge and Crissy Field, for visitor viewing. Installed in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge, the pop-up park will lend an extra touch of San Francisco to the summer light show.
The dome is more than 11,000 sq. ft., nearly three times the size of a standard IMAX screen. For the experience, Westfield partnered with Obscura Digital, a San Francisco-based creative technology studio, to conceive and create the innovative show, using one-of-a-kind 3D mapping technology.
Obscura was also responsible for the Illuminique Under the Dome holiday light spectacular at Westfield.
The free show begins at 5 p.m. nightly and runs every half hour until the Centre closes.
