Spring 2015


Bad Movie Night - First Friday of every month.



ODU's Pretlow Planetarium is happy to announce our line-up for spring 2015. This season we will have educational movies playing every Tuesday and live-shows on Thursdays.

April's Movie - Dark


DARK is a fulldome movie that explains and explores the nature of Dark Matter, the missing 80% of the mass of the Universe.

The search for Dark Matter is the most pressing astrophysical problem of our time - the solution to which will help us understand why the Universe is as it is, where it came from, and how it has evolved over billions of years - the unimaginable depths of deep time, of which a human life is but a flickering instant.

But in that instant, we can grasp its immensity and, through science, we can attempt to understand it.



All shows are free and open to the public, and families are always welcome. You do not need tickets or to make any reservations. The doors to the Planetarium will open at approximately 5:45 with the shows to start promptly at 6:00. We are located on West 45th Street, one block west of Hampton Boulevard. Parking is available in the Elkhorn Avenue Garage A at the corner of Elkhorn Avenue and West 43rd Street. There is metered parking on the bottom floor for $1 per hour.
