Liberty Science Center
The Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium at the Liberty Science Center is the largest planetarium dome in the Western Hemisphere, spanning nearly 90 feet in diameter. Formerly a giant screen cinema, the Chalsty Planetarium offers both live and pre-rendered content through ten high-resolution Christie Boxer™️ projectors, powered by Digistar in full 8K resolution.
Completed in 2017, the NanoSeam™️ repanel of the original 27-meter giant screen cinema dome provides an exceptional projection surface for the digital system. The increases in both brightness and resolution over the previous 15/70 film system require a smooth and uniform surface to have the projection look its best.

As part of one of the largest science centers in the world, the Chalsty Planetarium is one of the most recognizable experiences for more than 700,000 annual visitors. Because the planetarium now uses ten digital projectors (rather than the original 15/70 film system), the best-in-class Evans & Sutherland (E&S) auto-blending and auto-alignment utilities guarantee that both live-rendered and pre-rendered content are breathtaking.
