Sensory Friendly Feature Show at the Abrams Planetarium

Sunday, February 16, 2020
11:30 am


The Abrams Planetarium offers sensory friendly shows on the third Sunday of every month at 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. These shows will run with the lights up, the sound down, and the theater doors open so people can move about as needed. We also provide a place to “chill out” in our lobby. All shows include a live star talk about what is up in the sky that night. We will include a short break between the main show and star talk. Information about what to expect during the show will be provided when you purchase tickets.

Admission prices for all shows are:

  • Adults, $4.50
  • Students and senior citizens, $4.00
  • Children (age 12 and under), $3.50

The Sun has shone on our world for four and a half billion years. The light that warms our skin today has been felt by every person who has ever lived. It is our nearest star and our planet’s powerhouse, the source of the energy that drives our winds, our weather and all life. The passage of the Sun’s fiery disc across the sky – day by day, month by month – was the only way to keep track of time for countless past civilizations. Discover the secrets of our star in this planetarium show and experience never-before-seen images of the Sun’s violent surface in immersive fulldome format.

Sensory Notes:

Throughout the show, characters are very large in the front of the planetarium with some quick camera shifts. Throughout the show you visit various planets and moons. For each new one, it will come up quickly and loom over the viewer. There are also several instances of feeling like you are flying fast through tight spaces.
