MSG Sphere: Get a First Look Inside of Las Vegas’ New $2.3 Billion Venue

We have our first look inside of the $2.3 billion MSG Sphere courtesy of filmmaker Darren Aronofsky. Although the Las Vegas Strip’s newest venue’s 580,000-square foot exosphere has been on full display since July, its interior with “the largest screen on the planet” has remained tightly guarded until this week.

In a video posted via Instagram, Aronofsky debuted footage from his upcoming nature film Postcard From Earth, which opens at the Sphere on October 6th, while sitting in the stands. In the accompanying caption, the filmmaker revealed his team was testing the sound mix on the venue’s 160,000 speakers while taking in a sweeping visual on the “largest screen on the planet” boasting an 18k, 60 frames-per-second display.

“My iphone can’t come close to capturing the definition on the screen,” he shared about his half-petabyte, seven continent-spanning project. “At times you forget where you are and you’re transported to the other side of our home.” Watch the first look below.

The state-of-the-art venue, which will be housed at The Venetian Resort, will be opened by U2 on September 29th as part of their “U2:UV Achtung Baby Live At Sphere” Las Vegas residency. Check for remaining tickets and deals here.
