Double feature at North Hills’ immersion theater focus on sun, role of telescopes

The Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope on the summit of Haleakala on Maui, Hawaii.

The digital immersion theater at North Hills High School will present a double feature on Friday and again on Sept. 19 and 24.

“Sunstruck,” which starts at 6:30 p.m., will take viewers on a journey to discover the wonders of the sun and investigate how it has supported life on Earth for millennia.

The second film on the 24-foot dome screen, “Two Pieces of Glass,” explores how telescopes work and how they are utilized by the world’s largest observatories. The film begins at 7:15 p.m.

The free shows require reservations by calling 412-318-1000, ext. 3166, or emailing teacher Karen Grumski at: [email protected] .

Group reservations for community organizations are accepted, and special events for community members and groups can be scheduled.

The theater is located on the third floor of the high school, 53 Rochester Road in Ross.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
