McLaughlin Planetarium – Toronto ON

IjxUKsdykjQMVXo-800x450-noPadOnce a part of Toronto’s sciemce community, this doomed building featured a state-of-the-art electro-mechanical Zeiss planetarium projector that was used to project regular themed shows about the stars, planets, and cosmology for visitors. By the 1980s the planetarium’s sound-system and domed ceiling were used to display dazzling music-themed laser-light shows. The lower levels of the planetarium contained a gallery called the “Astrocentre” that featured space-related exhibits, related artifacts on the history of astronomy and was also home of the world’s first commercial Stellarium.
