From The Beatles to The Beastie Boys, from Alan Parsons to Pink Floyd, from Rachmaninoff to Radiohead, Vancouver’s Roundhouse Productions is celebrating 30 years of indie laser and light show production at the H. R. Macmillan Planetarium with the launch of Laser Radiohead.
On June 26th the show will feature special $1 pricing to celebrate the company’s milestone. The show will then continue at the Planetarium, located at 1100 Chestnut Street every Friday and Saturday, at 9:20pm through September. Tickets are available at the door for $10.75 (plus GST).
Operating as an independent production company with a unifying love of astronomy, Roundhouse Productions formed a relationship with the Macmillan Planetarium over 30 years ago to independently produce, promote, and present the laser and light shows in Vancouver. The Roundhouse shows quickly became a hit with Vancouver audiences, always generating the best attendance statistics across Canada, and continue as an iconic tradition through the generations at Vancouver’s Planetarium.
Performed live, brilliant four-color krypton laser imagery, 360° panoramas, giant video, 300 special-effects projectors, and Harold the Zeiss star projector, are all choreographed to every type of music imaginable in a 360° deep space dome with full concert sound. It has been said that the Roundhouse laser shows at the Planetarium are one of the longest running live theatrical performances in Vancouver. An audio visual feast for the senses.
Other Roundhouse laser shows playing at the Planetarium include Laser Coldplay every Friday and Saturday @ 8:10pm and the perennial Dark Side Of The Moon every Friday and Saturday at 10:25pm.
