Clay Center opening a new giant screen film today
CHARLESTON -- The Clay Center is opening a new giant screen film and a new planetarium show beginning today, March 8 in the ElectricSky Theater.
On the giant screen, "Beavers" will showcase the world of the small, yet destructive creature. "Beyond the Sky: An Oddyssey of Cosmic Proportions" will premier today and focus on the size and scale of the universe.
Experience the scenery and clear waters of the Canadian Rockies as you get to know some of nature's greatest engineers. Plunge into the aquatic habitat of a beaver family and watch as they level tree after tree to create a 300-foot dam. Show times for "Beavers" will be at noon, 1, 3 and 4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and at 1, 3 and 4 p.m. Sundays through July 3.
What's a light year? How big is the sun? How far away are the stars? Answer those questions and more in an all-new, one-of-a-kind planetarium show produced by Clay Center staff. From planets to stars to far away galaxies, travel through space in this galactic adventure. Show times for "Beyond the Sky: An Odyssey of Cosmic Promotions" will be at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday through July 9.
While at the Center, put on your thinking cap and use mathematics, logic, patterns and creative thinking to solve puzzles in "Brain Teasers 2," the newest interactive science exhibit in the Mylan Explore-atory. Then, visit the art gallery to vote for the best team and MVP in "Gallery Divided II: A head-to-head matchup between Marshall and WVU art faculty" and explore the natural world through artwork and interactive experiences in "Every Living Thing: A Closer Look at Nature."
