I had not been to a planetarium for years but this show brought back the magic of the universe. We went to the Solar System show (they offer a number of different ones) and the light show was really informative and enjoyable. Combine this with an IMAX movie and you have a really cool afternoon out.

Check the Planetaium's schedule for the family shows and the "not so family" midnight shows. Great laser works and very informative when showing actual planetary demonstrations.

Still remember the excellent educational shows in this planetarium from years ago when I was in school. Have heard it is still exceptional. Need to visit again myself.
