The Theater

Star Gazing Rooftop Deck

Perfect for a VIP Lounge Setting or for an intimate Sunset Ceremony, our Star Gazing Deck can accommodate up to 75 comfortably. 


Bring your own telescope, as pictured or for that extra special touch we offer professional star gazers to give your guests a tour of the highlights in the night's sky.  Their professional quality telescopes are set up for photography and video. 

The rotunda is approximately 2,300 sq. ft. and its perimeter features a four-story mural called “Tour of the Universe” by world-renowned space artist Robert McCall. McCall’s artwork celebrates America’s leadership in space exploration, and another McCall mural can be seen at the Air & Space Museum in Washington, D.C.  An enclosed rotunda patio may also be available adjacent to the rotunda, and is an additional 1,950 sq. ft. which holds an additional 100-150 people reception-style, with seven picnic-style tables (seating for 42.)

The Arizona Challenger Space Center is designed to help you host an Out of This World Event!
