The Orlando Science Center recently announced Star-Studded Evenings, a new program inviting Orlando locals to enjoy the Crosby Observatory and Digital Adventure Theater every Friday and Saturday evening from 5pm – 9pm for only $10.
Your $10 ticket gives you access to the outdoor viewing deck, which houses a 10″ Byers refracting telescope used to look at various celestial objects, as well as 8″ and 10″ reflecting telescopes. Knowledgeable staff will be on hand to give you insights into what you’re seeing and also tips for stargazing at home. The outdoor viewing deck is also a wonderful place to enjoy sunset views over the downtown skyline, weather permitting.
After guests have marveled at the stars, they can wander into the Science Center’s Digital Adventure Theater, which screens a rotating selection of awe-inspiring National Geographic films and Hollywood hits.
Now playing: Couples can enjoy either Secret Life of Pets at 5:10pm or Star Trek Beyond at 7:50pm. The Crosby Observatory, located on the top of Orlando Science Center, will stay open until 9pm.
The Digital Adventure Theater is one of only a handful of theaters in the Orlando area that features a 4K resolution projection system – capable of producing an image nearly four times the quality of standard high definition.
With SunRail running on Friday nights and select Saturday nights, this is a great date night opportunity for the astronomically curious. Hop on SunRail, enjoy one of many Ivanhoe Village dining options along Orange Avenue and then walk over to OSC for telescopes and movies.
Friday and Saturday nights until February 25
5pm – 9pm
$10 per person
NOTE: Exhibits will not be open during Star-Studded Evenings.
