• Supervolcanoes (11:00, 12:30, 14:00)
Supervolcanoes is an immersive planetarium show that looks back at rare classes of eruptions that have marshaled the energy that lurks, like a sleeping dragon, beneath the surface of planet Earth. The program moves beyond Earth to explore the impact of giant volcanic eruptions around our solar system. Audiences will fly down to Neptune's frigid moon Triton, and onto the ultimate volcanic world: Jupiter's moon Io. On a visit to a legendary North American hot spot, Yellowstone National Park, the film asks: can a supervolcano erupt in our time?

• We Are Stars (11:30, 13:00, 14:30, 16:30)

The superbly rendered animation, narrated by Harry Potter star Rupert Grint, We Are Alien takes you on a mesmerising, immersive and entertaining journey, as the show seeks to find the evidence of alien life in our galaxy. 

• We Are Astronomers (13:30, 15:30, 17:00)
