The Story of the Universe: Orlando United
June 17, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - June 18, 2016 @ 10:00 pm
In rememberance of those whose lives were taken from them at the Pulse Nightclub shooting on June 12, we have decided to give back to the Orlando community by doing whatever we can, with whatever we have, from wherever we are.
This weekend, June 17-18, the planetarium will open its doors for a series of free presentations of our classic show, “Story of the Universe.” Shows will begin at 7 and 8:30 p.m. both evenings, with doors opening 10 minutes prior to showtime. We can safely accommodate up to 75 visitors for each presentation, so please arrive early as admission is first-come, first-served.
One of the victims was Luis Vielma, a student at Seminole State College, and a member of a College community that we are fortunate to be a part of. Before and after each show, we will be collecting donations (with the assistance of the Foundation for Seminole State College) for the Luis Vielma Memoral Scholarship. It is our hope that we can provide some peace to a community so desperately in need of it — to showcase our Universe, a Universe that transcends our differences and magnifies our humanity.
