Dinner, a Movie, and the Universe 

When: Aug. 24-25, 5 p.m. 2012
Price: $9-$25

It's a fact that ice cream is more delicious on a hot day and a book is more enjoyable when read in moments of silence -- and it might also be true that a sci-fi film is most thrilling when viewed in the Chabot Space & Science Center's (10000 Skyline Blvd., Oakland) TienMegadome Theater, where movies are screened on a vast IMAX-style screen. See for yourself when Galaxy Quest and the 1978 Star Wars parody Hardware Wars run back-to-back on both Friday and Saturday, Aug. 25 and 26. It's the final weekend of the center's Dinner, a Movie, and the Universe series, which also includes dinner from Chabot's Skyline Bistro, access to activities and exhibits, and use of the observatory deck. 5-10 p.m., $13-$25. 510-336-7373 or
