What has been billed as a one-of-a-kind virtual reality experience is staying in the area for two more months to meet demand among Houstonians, according to a publicist for the production team.
“The Infinite” experience at Silver Street Studios, 2000 Edwards St. in Sawyer Yards, announced Feb. 10 that it has extended its Houston exhibition period until April 3 – after which point it will head to Washington state before embarking on an international tour. It debuted in Houston on Dec. 20.
The Infinite is a virtual reality journey through the International Space Station (ISS). A virtual spacewalk includes new footage from the first-ever cinematic spacewalk captured in 3D and a 360-degree virtual reality shot outside the ISS on Sept. 12, 2021.
Visitors can also take a self-directed virtual tour of the ISS, according to a news release. The exhibit, which debuted in 2021 in Montreal, uses video footage captured by the astronauts for the 2021 Emmy Award-winning film “Space Explorers: The ISS Experience.”
“We are very excited to be able to reach additional space voyagers in Houston and across the broader region by extending THE INFINITE through April 3,” said Éric Albert, the co-CEO of Infinity Experiences Inc.
Beginning Sunday, tickets for the 60-minute experience will be $45, and children under age 8 are not allowed. The Infinite will be open from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays, 11 a.m-11 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 10 a.m.-11 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m.-9 p.m. on Sundays.
