Commerce, TEXAS-The Texas A&M University-Commerce planetarium is offering Saturday matinees on the first and third Saturday of each month through May.
Each Saturday will host different shows. The first show will start at 2 p.m. featuring a children's favorite, and the second feature will start at 3 p.m. for adults.
"If you missed one of our older features or simply would like to see one of your favorite shows again, please come see us for our Saturday matinees," said Cheri Davis, assistant planetarium director.
Reservations are not needed for the matinees. The ticket office will open at 1:30 p.m., and regular ticket prices apply. Admission is $3 for those under 18 and A&M-Commerce students, $3.50 for university employees and senior citizens, and $4 for all others. A discount of $1 per person will be offered if tickets are purchased at the same times for two shows viewed on the same day.
