Adler Afraid of the Dark?

Adler Planetarium

October 19 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm



Exclusively for adults 21+, this evening offers you open access, unlimited shows, and unique entertainment every third Thursday of the month from 6:00–10:00 pm (Summer hours, May-August: 6:30–10:30 pm.)  With themes that change every month, Adler After Dark is never the same event twice. Reinvent your Adler experience every month with friends, family, or that special someone on a date they’ll never forget!

Need some Adler After Dark costume inspiration? Check out some of our photo albums of past AAD attendees! If you’re planning on attending an Adler After Dark event in costume, please see our Cosplay & Costuming Weapons Policy.


If you grew up in the 90s, you remember the spine-tingling (and often campy) stories told ‘round the campfire in Are You Afraid of the Dark. But the universe is even scarier than you imagine. Don’t miss this fun & fear-inducing Adler After Dark!

Explore the dark side of the Universe with special programs and talks from our friends at Fermilab, including virtual reality demos and activities on particle physics, dark matter, and more. If that’s too dark for you, dance to the beats of Thriller and other Halloween classics on the dance floor, try some special brews from one of our partner breweries, and do some hands-on spooky science experiments!

And don’t miss a one-night-only showing of The Man from the 9 Dimensions, an award-winning fulldome movie from Japan that takes viewers on a mysterious journey to discover “The Theory of Everything”.

So join the Midnight Society and experience real creepy crawlies this fall, only at Adler After Dark!
