National Space Centre to stream award-winning planetarium show tonight

National Space Centre

The National Space Centre is throwing an awesome-looking Family Movie Night this evening. 

Whilst the largest planetarium in the UK is currently closed, they are planning to stream a fascinating cosmic show directly into living rooms around the world.

Entitled 'We Are Stars', this special movie explores the origins of our planet in an entertaining way for adults and children alike.

Ahead of the online premiere, the National Space Centre will also be serving up popcorn recipes so you can enjoy a tasty snack during the film.

They're also planning to host a quiz - with a few prizes up for grabs.

The venue posted the event on their official Facebook page accompanied by the message:

"#FamilyMovieNight We Are Stars answers the all important questions we all have; What are we made of? Where did it all come from?

"The show allows families, adults and children the opportunity to explore the secrets of our cosmic chemistry, and our explosive origins.

"Developed by NSC Creative, a team of animators based at the National Space Centre, We Are Stars is currently playing in planetaria around the world. However, this is the first time the show has been able to be seen outside the fulldome and enjoyed, in full, in the home.

"We Are Stars is narrated by Andy Serkis. Andy Serkis has played some of the most memorable characters of the last decade in a raft of Hollywood blockbusters and in We Are Stars provides the voice of the Time Master. A Victorian gent with his very own time tent that will whisk you back in time 13.8 billion years."

You can take it all in on Facebook or YouTube.

The show starts at 6pm BST on Friday 24 April - and it's completely free.
