Star Theater & Discovery Movie Theater

The Planetarium is home to two amazing theaters. Our 70-foot diameter Star Theater houses the world’s first combined Digital & Optical-Mechanical projection system. Featuring both Digistar and Minolta Infinium star projectors together with an array of special effects projectors and lasers, the Star Theater simulates stunningly realistic views of the starry night sky as seen from Brevard County. Planetarium shows in the Star Theater feature live tours of the night sky followed by feature presentations on various topics in Astronomy. The Star Theater is also home to our special laser shows that combine music and laser effects. Combined running time is typically 50 min. Comfortable, unidirectional seating accommodates 210.

The Discovery Movie Theater houses a giant movie screen and features a 70mm large-format movie projector. Our film library consists of science documentaries from National Geographic, IMAX, MacGillivray Freeman Films and many others. Shot on location at some of the most exotic places on the planet, the colorful, larger-than-life imagery really “takes you there.” The move theater has stadium style seating for 175. Running times for films are generally 40-50 minutes.
