  From  Webster's  Revised  Unabridged  Dictionary  (1913)  [web1913]: 
 
  Cyclorama  \Cy`clo*ra"ma\  (s?`kl?-r?"m?  or  -r?"m?),  n.  [Cyclo-  + 
  Gr  "o`rama  sight,  spectacle.] 
  A  pictorial  view  which  is  extended  circularly,  so  that  the 
  spectator  is  surrounded  by  the  objects  represented  as  by 
  things  in  nature.  The  realistic  effect  is  increased  by 
  putting,  in  the  space  between  the  spectator  and  the  picture, 
  things  adapted  to  the  scene  represented,  and  in  some  places 
  only  parts  of  these  objects,  the  completion  of  them  being 
  carried  out  pictorially. 
 
  From  WordNet  r  1.6  [wn]: 
 
  cyclorama 
  n  :  a  picture  (or  series  of  pictures)  representing  a  continuous 
  scene  [syn:  {panorama},  {diorama}]
