In addition to the Giant Dome Theater films currently showing, teachers can select a film from our library and schedule a special showing for their students. (Subject to availability.) Screenings of library films require a minimum of 50 students for films under 30 minutes long, or 100 students for films 30-60 minutes long.

Giant Dome Theater films are not included in Museum Entry and require an additional, timed-entry ticket. To book your field trip including a film, complete the Field Trip Reservation Form or call (773) 684-1414 at least 14 days prior to your field trip.
