A recent trip to the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery afforded me the opportunity to visit the Dome Theater again. This time, I took my grandson to see “Accidental Astronauts”, an energetic all-ages romp in space.

I can’t deny it. The Dome Theater is cool.

But it isn’t just for kids. In the Dome Theater, for example, “Queen” is the current 360 Music Show. Coming FCMOD events: A “Sound Discovery” event on June 17. On June 18, poet Jodie Hollander gives a free public reading and leads a workshop, “Poetry and Deep Time in Northern Colorado”, with historian Jared Orsi.
