The Pavilion decided when opening the new planetarium they should show a movie that was decades old, a Foot Soldier who attended put in in perspective;

We went to the new Planetarium the other night during a members-only event at the Pavilion.

With everything we have been hearing, all the hype about the NEW state-of-the-art planetarium, we were shocked that they are playing such OLD programming. For example, the film they showed us talked about space exploration that “is scheduled to be happening in 2014.” The film mentioned old dates in this way several times! So this film had to have been at least 10 years old, probably more. Really, why would they be showing old videos? In the context of space exploration, that is ancient history and does a huge disservice to the viewers. Additionally, the animation in the film is OLD very low quality, looked terrible.

The rumor going around is that the Pavilion bought a license free digital library for the Planetarium, which is NOT a bad idea, but they should only be used for fill in. Any NEW movies or material should be rented by the Pavilion to show the latest releases. On top of that they charge an extra $5 dollar fee to go to the planetarium! On top of that, that, a few years ago the Pavilion fired their entire catering staff and job it out! Can we have anything nice in this town?

    Actors are on strike but not since 2014! The extra $5 is not so bad. With present inflation, should be double. The Pavilion had been booking some good stuff but maybe future disappointment. It’s a good place for homeless to come in from the cold.

    2014?….: Those were still innocent times. Letterman was still on. Dua was only 19. We hoped EB-5 would destroy the SD GOP. Obama was president. We let Russia take Crimea. A double Whopper with cheese and bacon meal wasn’t 14 dollars. We had no clue that Brittney needed to be freed. Teslas were the only electric cars. We all admired Musk back then, too. Huether was then hoping for 85 or 73%, but instead he got 56%. The doxer was still doxxing. The animals were decaying without our knowledge. Badlands Pawn was being built with great promise. Flying cars were just around the corner, they said. Women had reproductive rights. Trump was merely designing his hat. Noem was just an At-large cowgirl. Biden was wondering still which election cycle he would finally be president. No riots or protests, yet, and the mannequin challenge was just a pipe dream then, while others preferred a bucket of water on their heads, but that was 2014 and this is now, 2023. But actually it all doesn’t really matter anymore, because we are all screwed and time no longer matters when one is sucked into the oblivion of the last “black hole” which is dubbed by some as the final call, where the lights come on only to then be turned off by the galactic dance between climate change and A.I..
