Enjoy two Zula Patrol fulldome programs. In Under the Weather, our heroes of the Zula Patrol use their loyal pet Gorga’s ability to collect and bottle all kinds of weather to collect samples for scientist Multo’s research. In Down to Earth, the Zula Patrol turns up evidence that the villainous Deliria Delight has been traveling back in time to Earth’s prehistoric past to illegally dump her company’s toxic trash. Shows are appropriate for children ages 4-9. Adults $5; students, seniors, and kids $4, at the door. See both back-to-back and get the second show half price!
