The evening also includes a planetarium program and several laser shows. Shows are $3 for VLM members, $6 for non-members. Double features are $5 for VLM members and $10 for non-members.
The Wild Side Café is open during the evening.
Looking for some Saturday night fun? Start with a planetarium program.
