Star Theater
The Space Science Center’s Star Theater at Morehead State University is a state-of-the-art digital planetarium serving the surrounding area of Eastern Kentucky. The planetarium offers public shows on second and fourth Saturdays throughout the year on a first-come first served basis: reservations do not need to be made in advance. Tickets may be purchased with cash or check at the door. We cannot take credit cards. Typically, a planetarium show includes a special feature from our extensive program library as well as a tour of the night sky. The laser system has just been refurbished, so we will be offering laser shows again on these same Saturdays throughout the year.

During the summer, we will also be offering "Hands-on Science Fun" between the earlier and later planetariums shows, and, as weather permits (the sky clear and temperature warm enough) opportunities for viewing of the night sky with telescopes after dark.

The star theater will also offer public domain science fiction movie nights on the last Friday of each month. The Star Theater is available for use during the week and evenings by school and community groups by reservation. See the calendar for the current show schedule.

In case of inclement weather, please visit The Star Theater follows MSU procedures for closure.
