A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!
We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.
Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)
Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!
And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.
This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.
Matinee and evening shows!
September 9, 2013
1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
A brand new full dome computer animated show featuring a vast array of larger than life dinosaurs! A father and daughter travel through time to the epoch of the dinosaurs and learn the origins of flight.
Portland Events Board (P.E.B.) is the University of Southern Maine's event planning board. Some of our events include zip lines at Husky Fest, Rooftop dances, USM night at the Seadogs and Red Claws, and many more! PEB aims to provide means of entertainment to USM Portland students that are engaging, while providing opportunities for students to connect with each other and the USM Portland community so that they enjoy their experience as students at USM. Join us for our bi-weekly meetings and help us plan new events!
A new discussion group from the planetarium that brought you the "Midnight Metaphysics Society." Are you interested in contemplation? Do you want to engage in philosophical discussions with like-minded people? Would you like to discuss and contemplate in a star dome?
"The Philosopher's Dome" involves a lecture format. Share your ideas about the profoundest questions of life, nature, ethics, and a variety of other topics. The only pre-requisite is an interest in philosophy and an inclination to share that interest with others.
And, you determine the cost: admission by donation.
Circle K International has three tenets: Service, Leadership, and Fellowship. Here at USM, Circle K is not only performing community service hours, but building leaders and friendships at the same time. Please join us weekly so we can make a difference in the Greater Portland community as well as New England and the world.
