Pink Floyd returns to the Delta College Planetarium!
Beginning Saturday, February 3 at 7pm, the Delta College Planetarium will bring back its music show “Dark Side of the Moon” featuring the famous album by Pink Floyd.
Still one of the most popular soundtracks for light shows worldwide, the show features the music of famed British rock group Pink Floyd, visually interpreted with spectacular computer visualizations and special effects. The 45-minute multi-visual performance will feature Pink Floyd’s most popular album, mixed in 5.1 digital surround sound and played through the planetarium’s 12,000 watt sound system.
The wrap-around environment of the planetarium’s digital dome theater allows for the creation of countless three-dimensional effects, making the music seemingly come to life. The heart of these effects, called Digistar, will create flights through space, soaring landscapes, spinning tunnels and abstract figures; a fun and imaginative journey for the senses. The wrap-around scenery on the dome will give viewers a sense of ‘Pink Floyd in the round’!
“Every performance last winter was sold out and many people didn’t get a chance to see it, so we felt it was an obvious choice to run it again this year,” says Mike Murray, Planetarium Manager. “This time we’ll be adding some new lighting effects and live-performance immersive graphics to add a unique feel to each show,” adds Murray.
“Dark Side of the Moon” will play on Saturdays February 3 through March 31 at 7pm. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for children, students, seniors and military. Due to its intense nature and language, the show is not recommended for children under ten. Tickets go on sale at the Planetarium one hour before show time.

The Delta College Planetarium & Learning Center is located at 100 Center Avenue in downtown Bay City.
