The Faulkner Planetarium announces the return of music entertainment shows. When the planetarium’s original equipment was replaced last fall with the upgrade to the Digistar 5 full dome video, all the old favorite music-based programs became obsolete. But Faulkner manager Rick Greenawald has found a new full-dome version of “Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon” that will debut at the planetarium at 8 p.m. Friday, April 4.
“This is not the old “Dark Side of the Moon” program that Faulkner customers remember,” said Greenawald. “It features original music from the entire classic rock album and you will definitely feel some connections to the old show from a thematic point of view, but you’ll experience the music in an entirely new way through trippy, mind-bending visuals. The new Dolby 5.1 surround sound also makes for an incredible audio experience.”
Greenawald says the show was produced by Starlight Productions of Murray, Utah, and was created to immerse the audience in surreal full color environments. “The feeling of motion is unmistakable, even though everyone is sitting still,” he said.
“Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon” will run at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights beginning April 4. Admission prices are $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, and $4 for students, including CSI students with a valid student ID. Children under age 2 are admitted free. Parents should note that this program contains mature lyrics and themes.
