Laser shows inside the Star Theater vary from family-themes to shows that feature popular rock music. A superb audio system is capable of achieving concert-level sound for our rock laser shows. For family shows, we do adjust the sound to more child-friendly levels.

A Fresh Aire Christmas (Mannheim Steamroller)

Fresh Aire Christmas

Family-Friendly

Featuring the music of Mannheim Steamroller, this family oriented show takes audiences on a glorious, laser-enhanced journey filled with dancing reindeer, snowmen, and a variety of Digistar full-dome effects, all set to a Yuletide theme which is both sacred and contemporary. This show is a real crowd-pleaser and one the whole family will enjoy.

Fright Night

Fright Night

Family-Friendly

Each year as All Hallows Eve approaches, the planetarium undergoes a strange transformation. Sightings of witches on broomsticks flying in front of the moon are frequently reported. The cleaning crew takes a break and lets the cobwebs grow, and the music gets, well, weird. Enter the chamber, if you dare, and enjoy tunes like Monster Mash and The Purple People Eater. We crank out the fog, turn up the volume, and drive you batty with spinning stars and crazy graphics. You'll just die!

Laser Holidays

Laser Holidays

Have a holly, jolly, good old time with these seasonal holiday favorites. Impressive computer animation, very special laser effects, and our spectacular Minolta starry sky, join together to add cheer and glad tidings to tunes sung by those who made them famous. (bring your own figgy pudding!)

Laser Mania

Laser Mania

Rock Music Show

Laser-Mania is one of our newest light and sound spectaculars! Rather than a single artist, this show brings together favorite tunes from the 90’s. A mix of musical styles spanning such artists as Santana, N'Sync, The B52s, and even Madonna, this show has a little of everything. Mixing the exquisite laser artistry of Audio-Visual Imagineering (AVI) with our own blend of multi-media effects this program is sure to please your eyes and ears.

Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin

Rock Music Show

Led Zeppelin defines much of what is hard rock today. The legendary sounds of Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Bonham and John Paul Jones are played at top volume and accompanied by our own special mix of video images, slides, fog, and lasers.  Features Black Dog, Whole Lotta Love, Immigrant Song, Over the Hills and Far Away and many more Zeppelin favorites.

Pink Floyd: Best of

Pink Floyd Best Of

Rock Music Show

The music of Pink Floyd is some of the most "visual" music ever recorded. This "sampler" includes tunes from the surreal and hypnotic Dark Side of the Moon, the throbbing and defiant The Wall, the dying echoes of the Division Bell, and more. Pink Floyd fans will love it.

Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon

Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon

Rock Music Show

There is no ‘dark side‘ of the moon, really. Matter of fact, it's all dark. Fans of the legendary rock group Pink Floyd will be blown away by this one. Perhaps the ultimate match between light and sound in shows all over the world, Dark Side of the Moon comes alive in our nothing-else-like-it production. You may have seen laser shows elsewhere, you may have seen films with this music, but we guarantee that you have not seen the combination of media that our facility brings to bear in this audio-visual onslaught.

Pink Floyd: The Wall

Pink Floyd The Wall

Rock Music Show

Pink Floyd's entire masterpiece album, played without interruption. This epic journey of ‘Pink’ from a timid little momma’s boy to a burned out rock star is a trip for the mind and heart as well as for the eyes and ears. The Wall is an Odyssey of repression, despair, anger, rebellion, and finally hope. From Roger Water’s shattering vocals to David Gilmore’s wailing guitars solos, this show is bound to under your skin in a distinctly Floydian way.

Star Spangle Spectacular

Star Spangled Spectacular

Family-Friendly

We'll sprinkle way more than 50 stars on the planetarium dome, and wave a few flags, too. Our 6000 watt sound system provides a little extra blast to the cannon shots of The 1812 Overture. Laser graphics, video, and special effects combine on the screen in a way that will make you feel proud to be born in America, the Beautiful. Other patriotic favorites include: The Star-Spangled Banner (National Anthem), William Tell Overture, Fanfare for the Common Man, Yankee Doodle, The Stars & Stripes Forever.
Don't let your family miss this limited-time program!

U2 The Laser Experience

Rock Music Show

The music of Ireland's finest rocks the dome in this compilation of hits. Tunes ranging from I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For to Discotheque fill the planetarium with sound, while we fill it with fog, lasers, and unique imagery. Definitely not for the faint of heart!
