The Merrillville Community Planetarium presents Larry Cat in Space, a public program beginning on July 10 and continuing through July 25. The show will be presented on Friday, July 10, 17, and 24, and Saturday, July 18 and 25 at 7:30 p.m. Additional showings may be added if needed. The planetarium opens for seating 30 minutes before the show begins. No one will be admitted after the program starts.

Larry Cat is a curious feline whose human friend Diane is a geologist being sent to the moon. Larry is miserable until he gets an idea: follow Diane to the moon! Larry stows away aboard one of Diane’s trunks and his adventure begins. “Larry Cat in Space” is a family program for children of all ages. The planetarium’s Gift Shop will be open before and after the program.

Admission to public programs is $4.00 for adults and $2.00 for children. Sorry, but we cannot accept debit or credit cards.
