Fulldome Shows

Black Holes

Few mysteries in the universe have the power and awe of the black hole. Only now are we on the verge of understanding their true nature. This new immersive digital theater program incorporates some of the most intense three-dimensional visual effects ever created on the subject.

Stars

Every star has a story. Some are as old as time, faint and almost forgotten. Others burn bright and end their lives in powerful explosions. Journey to the furthest reaches of our galaxy and experience both the awesome beauty and destructive power of STARS.  This dramatic program features the voice talent of Mark Hamill.

Magic Treehouse: Space Mission

Travel with Jack and Annie, stars of the Magic Tree House® best-selling children’s book series, as they search for answers to a mysterious riddle they discover in a written note signed “–M.”  Viewers peek into the treehouse and follow Jack and Annie on an exciting adventure as they meet a helpful astronomer and an astronaut. As they travel to an observatory and beyond into space, Jack and Annie nearly get … well, we don’t want to give the surprise away!

Dynamic Earth

Dynamic Earth explores the inner workings of Earth's climate system, following a trail of energy that flows from our Sun into the interconnected systems that create our climate. You'll ride on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and whales and fly into fiery volcanoes!  This fulldome planetarium show is the result of a two-year collaboration between Spitz Creative Media, the advanced visualization lab at the National Center of Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois, and Thomas Lucas Productions Inc. Produced in association with the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and NASA Earth Science. Narrated by Academy Award-nominated actor Liam Neeson.

Secret of the Cardboard Rocket

Adventure through the solar system in the Cardboard Rocket! Travel with two children and their navigator, the talking astronomy book. Visit the Sun, the planets, the Moon and more. The narration track was edited in 2007 for the reclassification of Pluto to dwarf planet. References to "smallest planet," "ninth planet," and "last planet" were removed and Pluto is simply termed a planet in view of it being a new category of planet.
