February 2016

Spring can be viewed as symbolic of starting new projects, sowing new seeds and coming forth with new ideas. In line with that perspective the Imaginarium will premiere several new shows in our Spring programming. Watch for these first time viewings in the months ahead:

Pink Floyd: The Dark Side of the Moon, Friday, March 11 at 8:15pm.
Immerse yourself in a fulldome experience of Pink Floyd’s 1973 classic rock music album synched with the next generation of computer generated imagery of mesmerizing waves of colors, images, and animations. Not recommended for young children, suggested age 8 and above. (Coinciding with the premiere of “The Dark Side of the Moon” on March 11 is a partial solar eclipse on March 8 and a penumbral lunar eclipse on March 22-23 — the solar eclipse involves the new moon’s dark side, while the earth’s shadow creates a dark side to the full moon during the lunar eclipse.)

Ancient Skies, Friday, April 8, 7:00pm
Hidden within some of Mankind's oldest monuments may lie the foundations of modern science. Using motion controlled time-lapse, CGI, and interviews with some of the most respected archaeologists and astronomers of our generation, this program explores the possibilities that the construction of these monuments were intimately connected to celestial cycles.

Voyages of the Starship Discovery, Friday, May 13 at 8:15pm
This interactive show enlists your services onboard the Starship Discovery as an engineer, scientist or observer as you journey across the Milky Way galaxy. Engage the Imaginarium’s control buttons at your seat for the first time to fly to distant worlds as you probe and explore their cosmic mysteries. Your mission — to go where no human has gone before and view our place in the universe.

Also new in 2016 is the recent discovery of a ninth planet in our solar system. The yet unseen Neptune size planet orbits our sun every 15,000 years in an elliptical orbit. Planetary scientists from Caltech in Pasadena have theorized about the existence of “Planet X” based on detailed analysis of the orbits of other distant objects and months of computer simulations; to hear more about this amazing analysis follow this link.

Brought back by popular demand are the Star-Crossed Lovers Valentine’s Day shows at the Imaginarium in February. Two live Stargazing performances will feature uncensored tales of affairs of the heart in the constellations. Classic Greek tales have always fascinated mere mortals, with traditional astronomy shows usually avoiding discussion of the bawdy details of adult themes that run through mythology—not so in the two Star-Crossed Lovers “adults-only” shows. Gaze through the universe and back in time as Krissie Kellogg shares the often censored details of mythological love, loss, and affairs of the heart between constellations in her own distinctive style! Attendance is limited to audience members 21+ years of age with identification.

Sunday, February 14, 2016 $15 per person (singles and couples welcome) includes admission, glass of wine or non-alcoholic beverage, flower, Valentine’s favor and photo booth opportunity.

1st Seating: 6:30 – 7:00pm Social Time (wine, favor, photo booth) 7:00 – 8:00pm live Star-Crossed Lovers show.
