I think amenity=planetarium is perfectly reasonable. A planetarium is a
place that resembles a theater but the "show" involves models of the
planets and/or the stars & universe. If OSM can have an amenity=brothel
tag, we can certainly have an amenity tag for planetaria, which are in my
opinion "something for the benefit/enjoyment of society as a whole" whereas
it is arguable whether brothels fit into that category. ;-)
