Be immersed in the cosmos and travel 3D style at the ‘Imiloa’s presentation of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe on January 4.

Tour the universe from the comfort of the planetarium’s plush seating and learn what astronomers are discovering using observatories around the world, including our island’s observatories atop Mauna Kea.

The hour-long program will discuss and display the galaxy and other large scale structures.

This program is the first of the ‘Imiloa’s new Friday lineup of shows, presentations and musical entertainment. For more information on this and future programs, visit the website at, or call 808-969-9703.

Shows begin at 7 p.m. on Fridays and cost $10 for general and $8 discounted for members. Tickets may be pre-purchased, but are non-refundable. Check out the special “word of the day,” discount on the website and save a few bucks.
