Thank you to those of you who RSVP'd for the UIT Summer Party, which is scheduled for Monday, June 24, 2019 from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. at Clark Planetarium. Attendees will enjoy a delicious lunch and an afternoon filled with interactive exhibits, IMAX and dome theatre films, and more!
Your ticket is needed to receive your lunch and popcorn - please hang on to it.
This year's menu includes a build-your-own Southwest-style lunch with smoked sweet pork, shredded chicken, cilantro rice, seasoned black beans, lettuce, tomato, cheese, sour cream, and chips and salsa, as well as a lemon bar for dessert. Vegetarian, gluten-free, vegan, and dairy-free fare will be available, and the entire menu is nut-free. A detailed menu has been sent to those with special dietary needs. Lunch will be served from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
You can pick up a bag of popcorn from the snack stand, which can be eaten as you explore the exhibits or enjoy a film in the IMAX theater (no food or drink is allowed in the Hansen Dome Theatre). Additional snacks will be available for purchase at a 15 percent discount, as will all gift shop items.
Four films will be screened as part of the event: "Ultimate Universe" and "Faster Than Light" in the Hansen Dome Theatre and "Apollo 11" and "A Beautiful Planet 3D" in the Northrop Grumman IMAX Theatre. Additional information about ticketing will be provided via email prior to the event.
A limited number of Gateway South Garage parking vouchers will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are able, please plan to carpool, walk, bike, or ride the TRAX Blue Line to the Planetarium stop.
We look forward to seeing you there!
