"Grab A Seat" Campaign

Make your mark! Be a part of Los Angeles’ most beloved landmark by having your name on a seat in one of our two great theaters. Imagine coming to the Samuel Oschin Planetarium theater or the Leonard Nimoy Event Horizon theater and finding your name, or any other name you choose, engraved on a brass donor plaque on the arm of your seat.

Take Your Seat Among the Stars

Here is what you need to know:

  • Each seat has a 1 inch x 3 inch brass donor plaque which will be engraved according to your preference.
  • You can sponsor a seat as a gift, display your personal commitment or use it to honor someone special.
  • Each sponsored seat is $1000 and fully tax deductible.
  • Your seat is sponsored for a period of five years, after which you receive first rights to continue your sponsorship. Your five-year sponsorship commences upon installation of your donor plaque. You will be notified of its location and installation.

There are a limited amount of seats available so don't delay!
