The new Millikan Science Hall houses an excellent planetarium, featuring the latest most immersive technology in digital planetarium software, projection & sound. Our all digital full dome offers audiences unique shows both 2D and 3D.

The theater can host 32 patrons per show and all shows are presented by a live and engaging speaker for a full interactive experience. The planetarium shows will include a 15/20 minute live show followed by a 25/30 minute feature show. The live shows typically starts from the starry sky as you would see it on a clear dark night and travels through our galaxy, highlighting the latest news in space exploration.

The Digital Planetarium theater was built thanks to a generous donation from the Fletcher Jones Foundation. The Foundation was established in 1968 by Fletcher Jones, co-founder of Computer Sciences Corporation. Based in Pasadena, the Foundation’s mission is and has been to support private, independent colleges and universities in California
