There’s been some confusion about Disney’s 360-degree film formats – the original format that opened in 1955 with A TOUR OF THE WEST, which ran until 1960, and then with AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL until 1966, was an 11-screen, 16mm format (in 360 degrees) called CIRCA-RAMA. When Tomorrowland was refurbished in 1967, with a new version of AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL, the 360-degree film format was now a 9-screen, 35mm format (in 360 degrees) called CIRCLE-VISION360.

The original 16mm Circarama camera is on display in San Francisco at the Walt Disney Family Museum.
