New Theatre and Planetarium to Open at the MOST
Visitors to the Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science & Technology (MOST) can soon experience space in a new way. The National Grid ExploraDome, a state-of-the-art theatre and planetarium, will open on April 9.
Renovations to the museum’s old IMAX theatre began last March. Screens, seating, and surround sound were all updated, and a Laser CineDome projection system was added – the MOST said it is one of just two in the world.
“By renovating the theatre and adding in a unique planetarium component, we will provide a location for visitors and students to experience things like space exploration and environmental science topics that will ultimately increase awareness and understanding of STEM in a way that only the MOST can provide,” said President Lauren Kochian in a press release. “This upgrade wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of all of our partners at National Grid, a long-time STEM education and exhibit sponsor, at the MOST and in the community.”
