4 Reasons Your Next Nashville Date Night Should Be at the Planetarium


Sure, you’ve driven by and admired the technicolor light show on the pyramid-shaped top of the Adventure Science Center on your way to celebrate Taco Tuesday at Subcultural Cafe. But did you ever think of taking Bae?

Well, you should.

Here are our 4 reasons the Second Saturday event series is the date night you never knew you needed.


The planetarium as you’ve never seen it before.

This is WAY better than that time you went to the planetarium on your 8th grade field trip and Russell Hammond stuck his gum in your hair on the school bus. (Not that we would know anything about that.)

Sudekum Planetarium’s Second Saturday features a fulldome experience that will make your typical dinner-and-a-movie date seem downright basic.


A One-of-a-Kind Sensory Experience.

Sudekum Planetarium features a 63-foot dome where you will be immersed in sights and sounds, featuring fractals, kaleidoscopes and other experiences you won’t get anywhere else in town. Just don’t use the phrase “experiences you won’t get anywhere else in town”  in reference to yourself when inviting your potential plus-one. That’s creepy.


Gain appreciation for new art and culture.

This month’s feature is Art Universe, which was created for VoodooFest 2015.

If your date isn’t impressed with your creative plans for a night out and the cultural references of this show, she or he’s sure not going to be impressed with your miniature cat figurine collection (so don’t even try.)


Experience Cutting-Edge 3D Technology

This marriage of arts and science is Keith-and-Nicole-level awesome. Artists and developers work together to bring life to still artistic images using animation, 3D modeling and compositing. And no, we don’t know how that works either, but your sweetie will surely be impressed by the genius behind such a stunning show.

So what are you waiting for? Get your tickets now and enjoy a uniquely fun night out with that special someone.
