The planetarium offers public shows on second and fourth Saturdays at 11 a.m. (full-dome planetarium movie feature), 1:30 p.m. (full-dome planetarium movie feature), and 6:30 p.m. (laser show), throughout the year on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets can be purchased at the door by cash or check. We cannot accept credit cards.

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. We plan to offer "Hands-on Science Fun" in the summer between the two earlier planetarium 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 by schools, families, and community groups. 


School & Community Groups
