Now that's an interesting use of a planetarium

It's something that should be part of the International Year of Astronomy, but Science Outside the Square, together with Adelaide Film Festival (AFF) and the Australian Network for Art and Technology have set up the Dome Project. This is where films have been specially made to project on Planetarium domes, but the subject matter can go beyond the usual starry night fare of Planetariums.

There is both free and ticketed events, To quote the SOS website:
