Here are our 3 reasons to get your tickets now.


Hang with The King (of Pop) and Queen on the Dark Side of The Moon

Precisely choreographed laser shows bring the music of some of your favorite artists to life. Let Michael Jackson’s Thriller get you psyched for Halloween, or maybe Queen can help you find an escape from reality with their sing-along anthem, Bohemian Rhapsody. We know you once tried watching The Wizard of Oz to the tune of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, but trust us— this laser show truly is the Great Gig in the Sky.


Learn Something That You Can Actually Use

Remember that time you tried to impress your date by showing her the constellations, and she schooled you on Orion’s Belt? #awkward

Why not take the time to learn the actual alignment of the stars with a date you’ve already impressed somehow? The Skies Over Nashville live show will teach you which stars, constellations, planets and deep space objects are observable from your own backyard!


Solve All the Mysteries of the Physical World

Ok, so maybe you won’t actually do it, but The Man from the 9 Dimensions Fulldome feature sheds light on some of physics’ unsolved problems. Takashi Shimizu, horror movie pioneer, visualizes the world as theoretical physicists see it to create a new kind of science movie. We promise you’ll leave a little smarter.
