Adult Night: May the 4th be with you

SOLD OUT! Buy Catalyst tickets

This IS the event you’re looking for! Explore new galaxies, ecosystems of distant worlds and cutting-edge technologies in a galaxy not so far away. We’ll use the Force to separate the science from the fiction in the Star Wars universe.

  • Dance in the 3-story SECU Daily Planet Theater, featuring DJ Al-Ski Love of SPIN
  • Meet real-world inspirations for galactic creatures such as dewbacks, porgs and dianogas.
  • Enjoy droid encounters with R2-D2 and BB-8 replicas.
  • Fight in our ultimate Laser Tag battle.
  • Harness your Jedi powers and more!

Tickets: $15 in advance, $20 at the door, $10 for Friends of the Museum members (no matter when you buy). Beer, wine, cocktails and food will be available for purchase. You must be 21 years or older to attend. A photo ID is required for entry.
