The Larry K Forrest Memorial Planetarium presents a mix of live and pre-rendered shows. Live shows all end with a short film, and longer videos run by themselves.

*Schedule is subject to change due to field trips. During a field trip, we will do our best to accommodate patrons but cannot guarantee access to a planetarium showing.
