Show Descriptions

LIFE: A Cosmic Story

LIFE: A Cosmic Story tells the 14-billion-year saga of how we came to be. It's a journey from the microscopic view inside a plant cell to the vastness of our universe populated by billions of galaxies swirling in space. Life: A Cosmic Story begins in a redwood forest, then leaps backward billions of years to the origin of elements themselves. Continuing the journey, the show dives into the Milky Way Galaxy as it was several billion years ago, then leaps forward in time to we explore the effect that life has had on our planet. This 40-minute show includes a brief night sky update featuring the locations of the latest planet discoveries.


Manitoba Skies

Take a guided tour of the night sky! This show covers the current constellations, planets, and celestial events currently visible in Manitoba skies. The show is presented live by Planetarium staff, allowing current news and the latest discoveries to be highlighted.

Season of Light

Explore winter solstice tales and traditions from around the world and through the ages, all of which involve lighting up the winter season — from the burning Yule log, sparkling Christmas tree lights and candles in windows, to the lighting of luminarias in the American Southwest and the traditional ritual of the Hanukkah Menorah. The show also recounts the historical religious and cultural rituals practiced during the time of winter solstice — not only Christian and Jewish, but also Celtic, Nordic, Roman, Irish, Mexican and Hopi. This 35-minute show is designed for general audiences and includes a live segment on the current night sky.

The Alien Who Stole Christmas

It's Christmas Eve and Santa's in a space ship instead of a sleigh!  Will Christmas ever be the same again?  Tour winter’s evening sky and then join jolly ol' Santa and concerned alien, Mr. Freep, as they explore the solar system’s planets and meet the Christmas Eve needs of their fictitious inhabitants. This 30 minute show is designed for families with young children.

 

 

 

In My Backyard with Fred Penner 

A classic returns! Join Winnipeg’s best-known children’s entertainer, Fred Penner, as he explores things large and small, from the colors of the rainbow, to the reasons for the seasons. The show has been completely re-imagined for the DIGISTAR fulldome video system. Young scientists are encouraged to sing along with entertaining songs and participate while learning about the planets, constellations, meteors, the moon and more. Recommended for children ages 4-7.
