To celebrate its 5th anniversary, the Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan will be presenting a real first: a double bill featuring the two multimedia shows that have been visitor favourites since it opened in 2013: Continuum and aurōrae.


From the infinitely small to the infinitely large, a cosmic poem on the connection between humankind and the Universe. A breathtaking show designed by a pair of internationally acclaimed Montréal artists, Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon, set to the entrancing symphonic music of Philip Glass.
