They have regularly scheduled shows with various themes throughout the year. Go to their website to see what is scheduled and take your family for an inexpensive and fun outing! Unlike any movie theater you have ever experienced!

A great variety of shows. They do monthly telescope viewing from the rooftop observation deck. The dome has a digital system that feels truly 3D.

Always enjoyable whether if it's for a show or for other events in town held there. It is beautiful inside and out with an extremely helpful staff.

Took my son to the Pink Floyd show. The 7pm show was full so the staff added an 8pm and 9pm so all that arrived could see the show. Really appreciated that! We had lots of fun and would definitely go again!

As a part of the Midwest Birding Symposium, I attended an evening movie and talk by the person running the big theater. The talk was about the stars and constellations and was very useful.

Is only open sporadically now. This is not the place it was! We used to come here whenever we came to Bay City. Now it is rarely open, limited shows, and not really attractive anymore. Too bad, it used to be so great.
