The Pink Floyd Laser Light Show is Back in the 505!

Laser Mania in the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science Planetarium

 

For one weekend only, two albums of Pink Floyd and the music of the Beatles and Led Zeppelin will be brought to life in laser light on the full dome of the Planetarium at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History. Join us on July 11 and 12 for the quintessential Rock & Roll laser light shows—a true blast from the past!  Travel back to the sights and sounds of three immortal musical groups while two laser systems fill the planetarium dome with choreographed light, allowing the music and light to envelope you. Over a million laser-generated hues and colors poetically express each timeless track. If you want to enjoy this experience more than once, discounts are offered for attending multiple shows. Details at the ticket counter the night of the shows.

 

July 11:

7 & 9 p.m. – Laser Beatles

8 & 10 p.m. – Laser Led Zeppelin

July 12:

7 & 9 p.m. – Laser Pink Floyd: Best of Echoes

8 & 10 p.m. – Laser Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon

 

There will also be a different, more family oriented laser show with popular music at 3 p.m. July 12 – 17.  Laser characters, animations, and music make Summer Laser Jam an ideal program for people of all ages who are looking to take a break from the real sun and yearn for a soothingly cool indoor oasis.  The show features a variety of songs, including Surfin’ USA by the Beach Boys, Walking on Sunshine by Katrina & The Waves, and Good Feeling by Flo Rida, among others.
