Looking for an out of this world experience that will prompt child-like wonder but won’t involve children?
This summer Scienceworks is offering after-hours, adults-only access to the Melbourne Planetarium, screening films inspired by both space and music on its dome.
Although some memories of past Scienceworks experiences might be marred by the bustle of over-excited kids, these nighttime events are peacefully 18+ – replacing pop-top juices with alcoholic beverages that will be available for purchase at the bar to accompany your intergalactic, sound-tracked adventure.
Every Friday night from November to January Planetarium Nights features a rotating array of cosmic content, with a choice of two different screenings on each date and an option to attend both for enthusiastic interplanetary explorers.
On offer in January is Capturing the Cosmos, a visual overview of current Australian space research, followed by an immersive interpretation of Pink Floyd’s equally otherworldly 1979 album The Wall.
Tickets available on the Scienceworks website.
