Discover Entertainment Under the Stars in Midland

Discover Entertainment Under the Stars in Midland

There's something about enjoying a night sky. It opens you up to a sense of wonder and draws you in. The sky in Midland suffers from light pollution like most modern cities, but enjoying an evening under the stars is still possible.

Here are two ways to be entertained under a starry sky.

Marian West and William Blanton Blakemore Planetarium

At the Museum of the Southwest, you'll find the Marian West and William Blanton Blakemore Planetarium. This is a state-of-the-art facility. Updated and reopened two years ago, it boasts a 360-degree Digistar 5 system with 3D capabilities for both shows and graphics.

Light pollution is not a problem inside the dome. Experience the night sky as a brilliant projection. Learn about the constellations and see deep into space during a lecture or enjoy a movie night. Some of the movies they've shown are the visual and sound experience of From Earth to the Universe and Astronaut which is about the astronaut's journey. You may even have the opportunity to see an astronaut from the space station in person.

Big Sky Drive-in

How about a night under the actual stars? Big Sky Drive-in provides an evening of entertainment under Texas' big sky. Drive-ins have been making a comeback over the past decade. At the height of their popularity in the 1960s, there were 5000 across the country. Today there are fewer than 400. The rise of the cineplex was the downfall of the drive-in in the 1980s. But today they've become a fun thing to do again. 

Big Sky has three screens and space for 920 cars. This pet-friendly form of entertainment offers the traditional two features for what you'd pay for the price of one at a cineplex. The concessions stand has more than you'd find at some movie houses. Enjoy burgers, chicken wings or fingers, fried shrimp or pizza. You can't show a movie without that buttery favorite.

The city of Midland offers some unique forms of entertainment. If this inviting small city sounds like a fit, contact us to learn more about Sundance Creek Luxury Apartment Homes and schedule your tour.
