The towering five-story-tall Space Center Theater has the latest in audio and video technology after undergoing massive upgrades.

The renovations meet the requirements of the Digital Cinema Initiatives, which means not only can Space Center Houston show amazing, cutting-edge documentaries, but it also can screen the hottest Hollywood premieres.


Space Center Houston is currently showing two films in Space Center Theater. To get daily showtimes please visit the Information Desk.

EVA 23

Outer space is not completely empty, but it doesn’t contain much water, certainly not enough to drown an astronaut. Imagine the surprise and terror facing Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano when that fate almost befell him in 2013.

See the story of his near-tragic spacewalk and the people who worked to keep him alive in the 25-minute movie EVA 23 at Space Center Houston.

Space City Films’ documentary, EVA 23, recounts Parmitano’s spacewalk that was cut short when water began leaking into his helmet, nearly drowning him. The movie discusses why it happened, how he responded and what NASA has learned about working in low Earth orbit.

Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo

The blockbuster movie Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo is at Space Center Houston. A condensed version of this wonderful film will play in Space Center Theater, alternating with the epic Journey to Space.

Mission Control puts the focus on the people behind the scenes who helped put men on the moon and bring them back to earth safely. It tells their remarkable stories and chronicles how they became an extraordinary team. Be sure to check out this entertaining offering on your next visit!
