More of a media complex that a mere venue for performing arts, the Whitaker Center shows digital cinema, has an interactive space called the Harsco Science Center where science exhibits are showcased spread across 3 floors, an art gallery and gift shop and the Sunoco Performance Theatre that forms the stage for some of the best talent in the city. Along with the “Stage Two”, “Discovery labs”, the grand AMP lobby and the Kunkel gallery, the centre covers 130,000 square feet of space.
The Harsco Science Centre is the heart of the centre especially if you are a nerd at heart or are simply looking for a child- friendly space that promotes learning. You can find over 240 interactive and fun exhibits here that explain physical science, life and its evolution, mathematics, natural science and technology. The Sunoco Performance theatre is best known for hosting Orchestra performances, Opera and Ballet shows and also modern concerts of some of the most popular international artists. If you are into theatre, music and even science, a visit here will leave you inspired and in awe of the performances.
