With a 70′ wide, 5-story high screen and seating for 288, your guests will be launched into space while viewing a 3D IMAX film. The Northrop Grumman IMAX Theatre at Clark Planetarium features
a 14,000-watt, 6-channel, digital surround sound system for an auditory experience second to none. Most of the speakers are positioned behind the five-story high screen, which is perforated with millions of tiny holes. In this way, sound
can come at the audience from the film itself. Clark Planetarium offers a wide selection of films to meet the needs of any group.
The Hansen Dome Theatre houses a 55-foot, 178-seat planetarium with a state-of-the-art Digistar5 projection system, manufactured by Utah-based Evans and Sutherland Computer Corp. Digistar5
uses multiple high-definition video projectors at the base of the dome to display a larger-than-life seamless image, without additional display equipment, and without a projection area in the middle of the theater. A small staging area
at the front of the theatre can be used for live presentations and special events.
Enjoy your next event among the planets and beyond. The 3rd floor exhibit area offers an open space on the third floor separated from the rest of the Planetarium. There is plenty of open space for wedding receptions, business meetings, parties
and reunions. Interactive exhibits are spread throughout the area to make any event fun and educational. The 3rd floor exhibit area also serves as the entrance to
the Hansen Dome Theatre.
The first floor exhibit stage is an ideal location for smaller groups looking for a unique venue to hold a dinner or reception. Groups will enjoy hands-on exhibits that explore Earth, the Moon and the Planetarium's meteorite collection.
For small meetings and gatherings, the Classroom is an ideal space. The room features AV options and large whiteboard.
A full building rental includes your choice of three Dome Theatre and three IMAX documentary shows. The building is closed to the public during
the event so you can enjoy all that the Planetarium has to offer, including the 10,000 square feet of hands-on, brains-on exhibits. The Guest Relations staff will
be on hand to assist you with anything you might need.
