David M. Brown Planetarium: A New Way to See the Night Sky

March 4, 2015 1:01 pm

The David M. Brown Planetarium has become such a beloved part of Arlington's landscape that a nonprofit organization, the Friends of Arlington's Planetarium, formed to raise funds when the theater was in danger of going under. The group continues to keep the planetarium in tip-top shape today, along with an ever-growing fan base in the Arlington community.

Tickets cost only $3 for adults and $3 for children, so a show at the David M. Brown Planetarium won't break the bank. It'll also be educational. Learn more about the mysteries of space at a screening of Black holes: The Other Side of Infinity. After the movie, you can stay and enjoy the night sky as it appears outside on the planetarium's sprawling screen. The theater also shows kid-friendly movies, like films from the Magic Tree House series, and hosts monthly interactive lectures regarding various aspects of the galaxy.
