$24 for a One-Year Duo Membership ($49 Value)
The duo membership comes with two member cards valid for free admission to all IMAX and Hansen Dome Theatre shows and the basic benefits package, which includes discounts at the concession area and Planet Fun store, free popcorn with an IMAX ticket once per visit per day, a quarterly newsletter, members-only events, free or discounted admission to affiliated ASTC museums with the exclusion of "Leonardo" and "Discovery Gateway," and blocks of 10 tickets for $50 to IMAX documentary or Dome Theatre shows for guests. A membership grants holders free access to documentaries and dome shows, but the bulk tickets can be used for non-member friends or family. Complimentary admission is not available for Hollywood Films.
Within Clark Planetarium's space-exploration-themed facility, the interactive displays and immersive IMAX and planetarium shows enlighten visitors with interesting scientific facts. Spread out across 10,000 square feet, more than 15 hands-on exhibits entrance guests with artifacts such as photos from the Hubble Space Telescope and a moon rock brought back from the Apollo 15 mission.
Audio in the ATK IMAX Theatre emanates from a 14,000-watt digital surround-sound system as the 70-foot wide, five-story-high screen accommodates Hollywood hits and insightful documentaries in 3-D. More entertainment abounds in the Hansen Dome Theatre, where six high-definition projectors fill the 55-foot domed screen with seamless images during scientific films and cosmic light shows.
