Magic Globe: Winner of 4 International Film Awards! On vacation at her grandpa’s, a little girl named Mia accidentally discovers a mysterious piece of astronomical machinery. Edmund, Mia’s eccentric uncle, tricks the girl into using the tool’s secret powers to change the world’s seasons. She realizes the consequences of what they are going to do, but Edmund doesn’t want to let the plan go.

Flight of the Butterflies: The monarch butterfly is a true marvel of nature. Weighing less than a penny, it makes one of the longest migrations on Earth across a continent to a place it has never known. Follow the monarchs’ perilous journey and join hundreds of millions of real butterflies in the remote mountain peaks of Mexico, with breathing cinematography from an award winning team including Oscar winner Peter Parks.

James Webb Space Telescope - the Story Unfolds: The Arthur Planetarium is one of two planetariums in the country to serve as a beta test site for a year-long planetarium show progression telling the story of the James Webb telescope and sharing with the public never before seen footage and information sent from the telescope. Updated each month by the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, this show will mesmerize viewers with the latest information coming from James Webb.

Late Arrival and Re-entry Policy

Due to the nature of the Planetarium shows and the need to keep the theater dark, guests arriving 5 minutes after the start of the show will not be admitted. Please plan on arriving a minimum of 15 minutes prior the start of the show to allow time to purchase tickets and be seated comfortably in the dome.
