The planetarium offers public shows on second and fourth Saturdays at 11 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 6:30 p.m. throughout the year.

A Star Theater show includes a special feature from our extensive program library and a live tour of the night sky under our full dome. Our shows include full-dome planetarium feature movies on various science topics and laser shows. 

As weather permits (the sky is clear and the temperature is warm enough), we offer opportunities to view the night sky with telescopes after dark on our public show on Saturdays. The Star Theater also offers public-domain science fiction movie nights on the last Friday of some months.

The Star Theater is available by reservation for schools, families, and community groups.


School & Community Groups

The Star Theater offers shows designed for young children, planetarium shows for middle/high school students and adults, laser shows and classic science fiction movies.
