Roddenberry Planetarium Launches Summer Programming

El Paso ISD’s Gene Roddenberry Planetarium released their June movie events, just in time to fight off the Summer heat.

Summer programming begins Monday, June 18th. The summer shows are free and open to the public, however attendees must secure a ticket for the shows.

Planetarium fans can now reserve their tickets online 4 days before the show on Eventbrite or on their website.  With the online option, there’s no more waiting in line,  ticket holders just show up 20 minutes before the show and present their tickets.

For those who don’t have access to the internet, 40 tickets will be given away at the door on a first come first serve basis.

For more info and for the entire summer schedule, check out the EPISD Roddenberry Planetarium Page.  The El Paso Herald-Post is a proud sponsor and supporter of both the planetarium and the Planetarium Coalition.



Roddenberry Planetarium To Host Second Free Show on February 23

After the success of their first free show, El Paso’s own Gene Roddenberry Planetarium is inviting El Pasoans ‘to Boldly Go’ once again.

This time around, it’s a tour of our solar system in fine detail, as Perfect Little Planet explores the eight major planets, starting at 5:30 p.m. Friday evening, February 23rd.

Planetarium officials say the presentation “the show is fully animated and it explores all the 8 major planets of the solar system…it’s perfect for kids of any age.”

Since it’s creation in 1969, the planetarium has hosted well over two and a half million students from the El Paso Independent School District and students from all around the El Paso region.

As part of an initiative to enhance science education in America, the El Paso Public School system, the Junior League of El Paso, and the National Science Foundation pooled their resources and constructed our ‘gateway to the Universe’.
