No projector, the screen is made up of LED diodes.

from Wikipedia: “Upon its completion, the Sphere will be 366 feet (112 m) high and 516 feet (157 m) wide at its broadest point.[25] It will be the largest spherical building in the world at 875,000 sq ft (81,300 m2).[27] It will include seating for 18,600 people,[63][59] and all seats will have high speed internet access.[64] Haptic technology is incorporated in 10,000 of the venue’s seats.[63] Seating does not wrap around the entire sphere, instead covering approximately two-thirds of the interior while the stage takes up the remainder.[65] The venue can accommodate 20,000 people in standing capacity.[38] The sphere has nine levels, including the basement, where a VIP club will be located. A total of 23 suites will be included, across the third and fifth floors.[53]

The Sphere’s interior will be equipped with a 16K resolution wraparound LED screen, measuring 160,000 sq ft (15,000 m2).[66][63] It will be the largest and highest-resolution LED screen in the world.[46] The exterior of the venue will feature 580,000 sq ft (54,000 m2) of programmable lighting,[11][67] which can feature holiday themes, with the Sphere depicting a Halloween jack-o'-lantern or a Christmas snow globe, for instance.[5] Both the Interior and Exterior screens were manufactured by SACO Technologies, a Canadian company and world leader in LED video displays and lighting.[68] The Sphere will feature a spatial audio system based on Holoplot’s X1 speaker module, which uses beamforming and wave field synthesis technologies and is equipped with 96 drivers each.[69][70] The sound system will comprise 1,600 X1 speakers that will be installed behind the LED panels, along with 300 mobile modules, for a total of 167,000 speaker drivers.[71][72][73] The sound system will also deliver sound through the floorboards.[67] 4D features, including scent and wind, will also be used.[5]"
