Twelve year old Luke is interested in the Universe and its secrets. He is fascinated by the stars and the laws of nature. One night he sneaks into the Albert Einstein Museum where he meets ALBYX3, a small, clever but rather quirky robot who knows all about Albert Einstein and his theories. ALBY takes Luke on a magical journey through space and time during which they not only uncover the secrets of gravity but also learn about friendship and imagination.

This is a family show lasting approx. 45mins and will play at 12noon during July and August 2017


Launching on Saturday 1st July at 2pm and narrated by Sigourney Weaver is “Asteroid: Mission Extreme”

Asteroid: Mission Extreme takes audiences on an epic journey to discover how asteroids ae both a danger and an opportunity. The danger lies in the possibility of a cataclysmic collision with Earth; the opportunity is the fascinating idea that asteroids could be stepping stones to other worlds, veritable way stations in space, enabling us to cross the Solar System.
