Here's a Friday night movie with a difference! The National Space Centre are streaming a planetarium show online for the first time ever - and you can watch for free!
From 6pm on Friday 24th April you'll be able to watch 'We Are Stars' via Leicester's National Space Centre's Facebook page and YouTube channel. The show runs for 30 minutes, so it's not too long for younger ones to sit through.
You can also take part in a Family Movie Night Quiz* to have a chance of winning a family pass to the National Space Centre, to be activated when the attraction re-opens.
The show is narrated by actor Andy Serkis, best known as the voice of Gollum in The Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit movies. In 'We Are Stars' he provides the voice of the Time Master, who will take audiences back in time 13.8 billion years to explore the secrets of our cosmic chemistry, and our explosive origins.
'We Are Stars' is described as a "visual and entertainment treat" to be enjoyed by all ages, but the science content is best appreciated by those 7+.
If you're with a school there's a range of 'We Are Stars' educator packs, with curriculum links, available. Email [email protected] to find out more.
The show was developed by NSC Creative, a team of animators based at the National Space Centre, and has played in planetaria around the world, however this is the first time the show has been able to be seen outside the full dome to be enjoyed at home.
