Sci-Fi Saturday

Join us this fall for some classic sci-fi nostalgia! Film professor Theo Siegel presents each movie with fascinating details including its origins, the script, casting, production, audience reaction, box office sales, and the legacy of the film. 

Each movie is paired with a modern and spectacular full-dome planetarium show, so you can see the wonders from outer space, both real and fantastical!

Tickets to each double-feature presentation can be purchased individually, or get tickets to all 4 showings for a reduced price! Check out the links below to register
