Summer Thursdays: Sci-Fi Space Screenings

Summer Thursdays are BACK at the Museum of Science! After taking Boston nightlife to exciting new levels last year, the series returns to the Charles Hayden Planetarium with an all-new groundbreaking lineup of innovative nightlife. Every Thursday night, the dome will light up with one-of-a-kind new collaborations, performances, film screenings, and more.

On the fourth Thursday of each month this summer, experience sci-fi space classics. Lay back and enjoy as familiar scenes unfold amidst a bed of stars and classic characters light up the dome all summer long.

Plus, join us on the fifth Thursday of August for a special Star Trek movie marathon featuring two classic films of the series! See below for start time and ticket prices.

Make sure to arrive early before the show to enjoy beer, wine, and other refreshments for sale until 7:30pm at the Starbucks located in our Riverview Café.

All Summer Thursdays programs are for audiences 18+.
