Virtual Movies can help the Royal!

We are excited to be partnering with Academy Award-winning studio NEON to present SPACESHIP EARTH, the true, stranger-than-fiction, adventure of eight visionaries who in 1991 spent two years quarantined inside of a self-engineered replica of Earth’s ecosystem called BIOSPHERE 2. The proceeds from each ticket purchased will help support us. This can be purchased and viewed starting May 8 through link which will be provided here as well as on our Facebook and Instagram pages.

Watch the trailer HERE!


This is the first of what we hope will be many offerings of this kind. We hope this will allow up to offer quality film that we could not otherwise provide and that it will expand our audience to places outside our physical location. We ask our patrons to please share this opportunity with their friends, including those on social media and help the Royal widen our area of support.
