    Member Movie Nights - Exclusive Member-Only Events!
    Come join us for a feature film screening in our fabulous MegaDome Theater. These events are held on Sunday evenings, after regular closing hours of our museum. We will also be hosting a telescope viewing immediately following the movie screening. 

    RSVP's for these events are required at least 2 days prior to the event, please respond via the links provided. These are free events for our Chabot Members, however, we do ask that you be considerate and change your RSVP if your plans change, so we don't turn other members away in the event that you cannot attend. 

    No outside food or drinks will be permitted in the theater, in order to retain the state of the venue.
