Planetarium Nights (18+)

On Friday nights the Planetarium will reawaken after hours with a stellar line up of fulldome film screenings.

Journey through fluorescent coral reefs, marvel at the cosmos, dive into black holes and get ready for an alien invasion in the latest Planetarium showcase of films on the dome. Enjoy the fully

immersive cinematic experience with a drink in hand from our pop-up Planetarium bar.

The 7.30pm screenings focus on Astronomy and also feature What's In The Sky Tonight (WITST), a presenter-led tour through the night sky curated by Museums Victoria astronomer, Dr Tanya Hill. 9pm screenings will present a fulldome art film offering an immersive voyage into unseen worlds. So whether you are into science or art – or even both – we've got you covered.

Planetarium Nights are suitable for adults (18+) and booking in advance is highly recommended.

FRIDAY 13 OCTOBER

Session one: 7.30pm Starlight and WITST

Starlight
For thousands of years we have looked to the stars at night in wonder and awe. Their mysteries have inspired curiosity across all cultures and civilisations. Narrated by multi-award-winning Australian actress Sigrid Thornton, Starlight is told through the eyes of Margaret, as she steps back in time to relive childhood fears of the dark that awoke her curiosity about the night sky. Join Margaret as she takes you on an out-of-this-world journey to discover constellations and ancient cultures, the birth and death of a star and the inner workings of our Sun.

Session two: 9.00pm Coral Redkindling

Coral Rekindling Venus
Under the full dome of the Planetarium, take an extraordinary journey into the mysterious realm of fluorescent coral reefs, bioluminescent sea creatures and rare marine life. There you will find a complex community under threat and an understanding of how our fate, and the fate of the coral community are intimately connected.
