Sky Theater

Even though our facilities are closed, we are back "online" with our New Astronomy Streaming Series. Come check it out!

Unfortunately, due to the current pandemic, and our concern for our guests here at the University of North Texas, all public programs in the UNT Sky Theater planetarium, and the Rafes Urban Astronomy Center are suspended until further notice.

About Us

The Sky Theater @ UNT is located in the Environmental Sciences Building on the University of North Texas campus in Denton, TX. This unique 100 seat, 40-foot domed theater features the Digistar V projection system that can reproduce tonight's sky with digital precision.

Spend some quality time with your family, or feed your thirst for knowledge by coming to a show and experiencing our full-color, HD projection system. It can make you feel like you are traveling to nearby stars, taking a celestial roller coaster, or winding through a field of electrons within an atom.

The planetarium presents a variety of entertaining and educational programs for schools, the university and the general public. For more information browse through our links in the sidebar.
