About our planetarium theatre

Our story started with Tony Sudekum. A Nashville native and president of Crescent Amusement Company, we were priviliged to number him among our founding board members. After Tony’s passing in 1946, his widow made a donation to purchase our first star projector. Armand Spitz, the inventor of that projector, was the guest of honor at a ceremony dedicating the Sudekum Planetarium on March 3, 1952.

After renovations and two complete rebuilds, our planetarium has grown and improved. Whether you’re looking for laser shows, unique programs, or a modern version of the classic planetarium sky show, we’ve got you covered. Come explore with us!
