Griffith Observatory Debuts 1st Planetarium Show in 10+ Yrs

July 08, 2022

Just in time for summer blockbuster season, Signs of Life (see the trailer HERE), the first signature production to be created exclusively for the Samuel Oschin Planetarium at Griffith Observatory in more than a decade, makes its official debut to the public.

Signs of Life is an astronomical detective story that propels visitors to uncover what it took to put life in the universe. Earth is the launchpad to Mars, the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, and planets beyond our Milky Way Galaxy in a search for answers to the mysteries that captivate our imagination.

Produced jointly by Griffith Observatory, Griffith Observatory Foundation and by a team of the world’s top artists, scientists, and astronomers, this award-winning live show meets Hollywood production standards and storytelling priorities. Signs of Life is not a lecture or a movie but a singular, live theatrical production in the most technically complex theater in southern California – the Samuel Oschin Planetarium.
