The Spruce Goose Dome in Long Beach, CA was designed by Don Richter, a longtime associate of Buckminster Fuller, as a hangar for Howard Hughes' wooden aircraft the H-4 Hercules (a.k.a the "Spruce Goose"). Built in 1983, the dome is still one of the ten largest geodesic domes in the world.

The Spruce Goose was moved to a museum in Oregon in 1992. Warner Bros. now uses the dome as a sound stage. The Bat Cave in 1995's Batman Forever was built inside the dome. Other unforgettable classics filmed here include Virtuosity, Jack Frost and the remake of the Haunting.
