RMSC Strasenburgh Planetarium Becomes Rock/Disco Laser Experience Saturday Nights in May
ROCHESTER, NY—Musical hits from the 70s accompany brilliant laser lights at the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC) Strasenburgh Planetarium during 70s Laser. Shows take place each Saturday evening in May starting at 9:30pm and last approximately 50 minutes.
70s Laser features a range of songs and artists including "Go Your Own Way," Fleetwood Mac; "Rocket Man," Elton John; "Fly Like An Eagle," Steve Miller Band; "Popcorn," Hot Butter, and "Draggin' the Line," Tommy James. Also, a lively medley of classic favorites fill the dome, and includes a mix of tunes like "Macho Man," Village People; "Night Fever," Bee Gees, and "Disco Inferno," The Trammps.
Immersive video and luminous argon and krypton laser light effects splash across the Planetarium indoor-sky, heightening the experience with sight and sound. Audiences lose themselves in an exciting virtual environment, following colorful light movements that perfectly match the music. A six-channel digital sound system amplifies the sound. "Saturday Night Laser" show themes change monthly.
Admission is $7 for adults and $6 for seniors, college students, students ages 5–18 and RMSC members. Children under age five are not admitted to "Saturday Night Laser" shows.
