Reservations and Waitlist

Seat Reservations 

Seat reservations will open on the Eventbrite website about one week before each show. The dates and times for which seats will be opened for reservations are listed next to each show below, so please come back to Eventbrite on those dates/times to reserve seats. All times are given in local Eastern Time. If you are a member of the Planetarium Founders Society or Friends of the Planetarium Fund, you are eligible for early access to tickets. Please email us for your early ticketing.

We continually experience an extremely high demand for these public shows. If you arrive at the site and there is no option to reserve them, that is because they are sold out.

If you decide to take a chance and come to one of our public shows without reservations please know we seat all Reserved Seats first and then allow walk-ins on a first come first serve basis. We have a maximum capacity of 63 people and cannot allow anyone to stand or sit on the floor. If you experience any issues please email the planetarium staff with your comments.

Wait-list Requests on Eventbrite

We have turned off waitlists on eventbrite so tickets that are released become available for selection. While it isn't optimal, Eventbrite has poor waitlist management and this allows more tickets to be available.
