Mother's Day matinee of Earth, Moon & Sun.
Mother's Day matinee of Earth, Moon & Sun.

The Hōkūlani Imaginarium at Windward Community College is now accepting reservations for a Mother’s Day 2:00 p.m. matinee viewing of its fun-filled show EARTH, MOON AND SUN. Whether you’re celebrating mom, grandma, your mother-in-law, or any female on May 8, attending the show is a novel way to express your appreciation for that special someone.

EARTH, MOON AND SUN is appropriate for audiences of all ages. The fast-paced 28-minute show explores the fundamentals of our Earth-Moon system with the help of Coyote, an amusing character adapted from Native American oral traditions, who has a razor sharp wit, however is a bit confused about what he sees in the sky. The show explores the wonders of lunar phases, sunrises and sunsets, eclipses, space travel to our Moon and other celestial puzzles. Native American stories are told throughout the show to help distinguish between myths and science.

If you’re interested in making a reservation for this Sunday, May 8, 2:00 p.m. show call (808) 235-7433 between 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Regular Imaginarium admission prices apply:
