With its spectacular Zeiss star projector, digital projection system, state-of-the-art aluminum dome, comfy seats, sound system, and theatrical lighting, the 290-seat Samuel Oschin Planetarium theater is the finest planetarium in the world. Every show is presented by a live, engaging storyteller, and one of our current shows is offered every 60 to 90 minutes each day the Observatory is open. Show tickets may be purchased only at the Observatory and only for that day’s shows. Tickets are sold in blocks at various times during the day (see sale times below).
Signs of Life
There is plenty of life here on Earth, but where else might it be found? In Signs of Life we discover what it took to put life in the universe in the one place where we know it exists. We see how the laws of chemistry and physics drive cosmic evolution, and we travel through the solar system, the Milky Way Galaxy, and beyond in a search for more signs of life.
Show Length: 35 min.
