Exciting news from the National Planetarium: It’s finally upgraded its facilities and now boasts of a full dome projector with which to screen their shows. Yas!

Where before it used to be a dull square screen with nary any depth, the Planetarium now possesses the first hybrid projection system in Asia, integrating the 1975 analogue projector with a new one, allowing for a super trippy, almost 3D-like screening experience. “Dati po, na sa isang square lang po yung projection, ngayon parang 3D na siya. May lalim na,” says Miss Judy of the National Museum, which handles the Planetarium, tells MB Life.

To celebrate the good news, the Planetarium will be holding free screenings from March 24 to April 30. A caveat: They are still deciding which of the three shows—Planet for Goldilocks, Hayabusa, or Billion of Stars—they would screen for free.

In any case, there are five screenings a day: 9am, 10:30am, 1pm, 2:30pm, and 4pm.

Each screening is one a first-come-first-serve basis and can accommodate up to 200 people. “We don’t allow children below four years old,” Miss Judy continues. Interested viewers should be at the Planetarium 30 minutes before the screening time.
