Public Show Schedule

Public Planetarium Feature Shows

On selected Saturdays (see calendar), between September and June, come see a full-dome show and hear a live seasonal star talk highlighting our Kentucky sky. On sunny Saturdays, the planetarium will also have solar telescopes set-up outside to invite our visitors to see our star like you have never seen it before!
We have two types of planetarium shows.  Family shows (at 11 a.m.) are designed for families with young children (ages 4 to 10) in mind. Planetarium shows (at 1 p.m.) are great for middle/high school students and adults. All are welcome to attend either! 

 

Public Laser Shows

On the same Saturdays we have planetarium shows, we will have laser shows in the evening. 


Public Domain Science Fiction Movies

On selected Friday evenings (see calendar), we will use the planetarium dome to show vintage science fiction movies made from the 1920’s to the 1990’s that are now in the public domain. Believe it or not, 60 or 70 movies made in English are in this category.  Come and enjoy classics like Santa Claus Conquers the Martians and Invaders from Space.  A compilation of these movies can be found it https://www.imdb.com/list/ls002037861/.  We may also be able to add some public domain documentaries in the coming year.
