Multimedia Learning Center

Welcome to the Multimedia Learning Center (MLC) website! The MLC features a full-dome theater and state-of-the-art digital projection system. Students gain valuable experience by assisting with show production, hosting, and events. FSU faculty and staff use the MLC theater for their own courses and events.

The center's mission is to educate FSU and the surrounding region about the foundations and frontiers of human knowledge. We value innovative research and discoveries that inspire wonder, curiosity, and lifelong learning. Shows and events provide an enriched understanding of our place in the Universe.
