Digital Dome Theater

SUNY Corning Community College’s Planetarium is now the Digital Dome Theater, offering the Southern Tier of New York and Northern Tier of Pennsylvania more than a valuable astronomical resource. The newly renovated Digital Dome is equipped to offer educational experiences for all disciplines.

The new digital technology seamlessly integrates data, models, videos, and graphics from across the educational spectrum to engage audiences in a new immersive educational experience. The Corning Community College Digital Dome provides audiences with inspiring and amazing multimedia voyages on a 360 degree dome that are accessible to audiences of all ages and interests.
