Planetarium Nights

Fri 8th March, 2019 – Fri 31st May, 2019
Melbourne Planetarium, Scienceworks
2 Booker Street, Spotswood
Recline beneath the glory of the cosmos – with a beer – when the domed ceiling becomes an after-hours cinema.

The Planetarium recently underwent an upgrade and its new state-of-the-art six-projector system is ready to launch you through the stratosphere.

For the next three months, every Friday night, the 16-metre domed ceiling will become an after-hours cinema, with screenings from 7.30pm and 9pm.

There is a range of short films scheduled until the end of May that will take you to the Moon, into the heart of the Milky Way and across the surface of the sun.

Highlights include Distant Worlds – Alien Life?, which asks the enduring question, are humans alone in the universe? Meanwhile Capturing the Cosmos showcases the latest research and discoveries by Australian astronomers.

The screenings are for over 18s and the bar will be open all evening.
