Planetarium Nights 2019

Stare up at the full-dome screen with a drink in your hand.

There's nothing like watching a film at the planetarium, but it's something most of us don't do all that often. Daytime sessions cater to school groups, and the Melbourne International Film Festival's full-dome program only comes around once a year. Thankfully, Scienceworks' late-night series is about to change that.

Every Friday evening, once the planetarium's usual working day is done, adults can have fun in its impressive space. That means sitting in the reclining chairs, looking up at the 16-metre domed ceiling, listening to the 7.1 surround sound system and soaking in the best the full-dome video projection system has to offer.

Alien invasions, dives through black holes and more are also on the Planetarium Nights bill, and short films screen at 7.30pm and 9pm. Making things even better is the fact that the whole thing is boozy, so you can grab a drink from the bar, take it into the auditorium and sip while you watch.

Planetarium Nights will run every Friday from March 8 till May 31. There will be no after-dark screenings on Good Friday, April 19.
