2019 Free Public Planetarium Show
12/13/2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Bellevue College will be offering free planetarium shows: 45-min show consisting of a video “Secret Lives of Stars” and a live segment pointing out that night’s brightest stars and constellations
READ ME FOR TICKET INFORMATION: There are 60 tickets available per show. Tickets will be released starting at 9am the week before the show. Tickets are free, but because there is limited seating, reservations must be made in advance.
Once tickets are sold out, they are gone for that month. Sometimes, tickets are released back to Brown Paper Tickets if there are cancellations. There is no waitlist. You are welcome to show up the night of the show; if there are any last minute cancellations, the presenter will do their best to get you into the show, but there are no guarantees.
Who can attend: In the audience will most likely be a mix of children elementary-age through adults. We do not recommend these shows for children under the age of six. If attending with young children, please be courteous of other guests.
What to expect for your show: Parking is free in any of the lots on campus on the weekends. We recommend parking in the parking garage and walking over to the B-building. The planetarium is located on the second floor of the B-building. If you have not been here before, please allow extra time to find the planetarium. A map can be found at http://www.bellevuecollege.edu/location/maps/parking/
When you reserve your ticket, your name will be automatically entered onto the will-call list. The presenter will check your name off when you enter. Doors will open 15-minutes prior to the start of the show. Because the room is dark during the show, there is no late admission or re-entry.
If you need to cancel your reservation: When you finalize your reservations, you will receive a confirmation email. There is information in that email about cancelling your reservations in case your plans change. We do not charge for these events, but we need your help to keep it that way; please follow the steps in the confirmation email to release your tickets if you cannot attend.
