Digital Immersion Theater to Hold Double Features in October

North Hills High School digital immersion theater will welcome community members in October. A double feature of two back-to-back shows will be shown on the 24-foot dome on Oct. 11, 17 and 27. “Flight Adventure” starts at 6:30 p.m. and “Back to the Moon for Good” will follow at 7:15 p.m.

“Flight Adventure” introduces viewers to the science, technology and history of flight. The show highlights the advancements that have made space travel possible.

Like in the glory days of the ‘60s and ‘70s, the moon is enjoying the attention of lunar explorers. “Back To The Moon for Good” chronicles teams around the world competing for the Google Lunar XPRIZE, the largest international incentivized prize in history. It will be won by landing a robotic spacecraft on the moon. Teams from around the world are highlighted including the Penn State Lunar Lion team and the Astrobotic team at Carnegie Mellon University.

All shows are free and open to the public, but all digital immersion theater shows require reservations. Reservations can be made by calling 412-318-1000 ext. 3166 or emailing grumskik@nhsd.net. If no reservations have been made by the end of the last school day prior to the show, the presentation will be canceled. Group reservations for community organizations are accepted, and special events for community members and groups can be scheduled.

The North Hills High School digital immersion theater is located on the third floor of the high school at 53 Rochester Road in Ross Township. The gift shop that supports the North Hills High School Astronomy Club will be open for all shows.

North Hills remains one of only a few districts across the state to offer a digital immersion theater for educational and community outreach purposes in a public high school. It is overseen by high school teacher Karen Grumski.
