Description:

North Hills High School digital immersion theater will welcome community members in February for shows aimed at specific age groups. A double feature of two back-to-back shows will be shown on the 24-foot dome on Feb. 9 and 15. “Wilbear’s Adventure” starts at 6:30 p.m. and is targeted for children from preschool through elementary age. “Losing the Dark” and “Dark – The Movie” will follow at 7:15 p.m. and is appropriate for older children through adults.

“Wilbear’s Adventure” introduces viewers to Wilbear, a teddy bear who wants to fly. Join Wilbear as he learns about everything from constellations to the Wright Brothers.

“Losing the Dark” informs about the effects of light pollution on our ability to see the night sky, while “Dark – The Movie” explores the nature of missing 80 percent of the mass of the universe.

All shows are free and open to the public, but all digital immersion theater shows require reservations. Reservations can be made by calling 412-318-1000 ext. 3166 or emailing grumskik@nhsd.net. If no reservations have been made by the end of the last school day prior to the show, the presentation will be canceled. Group reservations for community organizations are accepted, and special events for community members and groups can be scheduled.

The North Hills High School digital immersion theater is located on the third floor of the high school at 53 Rochester Road in Ross Township. The gift shop that supports the North Hills High School Astronomy Club will be open for all shows.

North Hills remains one of only a few districts across the state to offer a digital immersion theater for educational and community outreach purposes in a public high school. It is overseen by high school teacher Karen Grumski.
