During the Hells Half Mile Film Festival, this was our favorite venue because of comfortable seating.

We just happened upon this place right before a film showing. Admission price of $5 was very reasonable so we went in. Very comfortable chairs. Best place to sit is in rear to see the most without straining. A one hour show consisted of a film and some live commentary. If you like planetariums, this is worth your time.

A great place to take the family. My grandchildren really liked the different shows that are put on there. We have been there many times.

Last fall we went to see the stars and learned about the constellations. It was a very cool video and presentation! I've heard there are many other cool exhibits and inexpensive things to do at the planetarium! Looking forward to coming back again soon!

They have regularly scheduled shows with various themes throughout the year. Go to their website to see what is scheduled and take your family for an inexpensive and fun outing! Unlike any movie theater you have ever experienced!

A great variety of shows. They do monthly telescope viewing from the rooftop observation deck. The dome has a digital system that feels truly 3D.
