Summer Thursdays 2019

Summer Thursdays are BACK at the Museum of Science! After taking Boston nightlife by storm the past two years, the series returns to the Charles Hayden Planetarium with an all-new groundbreaking lineup of innovative nightlife. Every Thursday night, the dome lights up with one-of-a-kind new collaborations, performances, film screenings, and more.

On the First Thursday of each month, your favorite Summer Slashers will slice up the dome and leave you screaming for more in thrilling immersive screenings. Second Thursdays, the eGaming phenomenon takes the Planetarium medium to competitive new levels. Every Third Thursday, experience a diverse lineup of live music with intimate and immersive performances under the dome. Fourth Thursdays, join cabaret band What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? to reclaim the myth in the world premiere of Medusa, a new multi-media musical experience. And on a special Fifth Thursday in August, celebrate a year of groundbreaking work with Coleslaw’s Corner: Year One Extravaganza where Drag Queens and the Planetarium fabulously collide!

Join us on Thursdays all summer long, only at the Museum of Science!
