The University of Alaska Anchorage's all-digital Planetarium & Visualization Theater. Come see 12 million pixels on our 33-foot dome, with Dolby 5.1 surround sound!
The UAA Planetarium and Visualization Theater offers a full-dome experience with an all-digital definiti projector system made by Sky-Skan, Inc. Two Sony SXRD projectors illuminate the dome with over 12 million pixels, creating a razor-sharp image. The dome is 10-meters (33 feet) in diameter and the theater has 62 seats (with tablet arms for notetaking) and three ADA spots. The projector system is operated in a "live" mode enabling the operator to fly through the Universe in real time. We also offer full-dome movies on a variety of subjects. (Please check our show listing to see which shows are currently being offered.) The planetarium also has a Dolby 5.1 surround sound system with a subwoofer, for a seat-shaking experience.
PeopleMover buses 1, 3, 13, 36, 45, & 102.
