California Academy of Sciences | 55 Music Concourse Drive, San Francisco, CA



NightLife | California Academy of Sciences

At NightLife, smart revelers receive special discounted evening admission to the California Academy of Sciences on Thursday evenings with unique special events each week.

  • Thursdays from 6-10 pm
  • Tickets are $15 ($12 for Academy members)
  • Last entry is 9 pm. 21+ with valid ID.

This week, NightLife explores the science and beauty of motion in the natural world—and on the dance floor.

Brush up your moves and try out a dance class, including a rhythm and motion class from Dudley Flores, instructor, and choreographer at Alonzo King LINES Dance Center and ODC School.

Explore human-animal relationships with Humanimal, an interactive projection that lets you communicate with a gorilla. In the Piazza, choreographer Katerina Wong presents Speck, a dance performance about humans, space exploration, and the connections between the two, using sounds from the Voyager Golden Record and other NASA missions.

Learn about human and robotic movements side-by-side with San Francisco State University’s Department of Kinesiology.

And finally, explore movement on a much larger scale—which Californians know all too well—with two screenings of Earthquake in the Morrison Planetarium.
