Years ago, there used to be a trippy laser show at the Vancouver planetarium that kept space nerds, Pink Floyd fans, and lots and lots of stoners really happy on weekend nights. Unfortunately, the show shut down about three years ago.
However, much to everyone’s delight, the Vancouver laser show is now back on at a new location at the BCIT Planetarium (BCIT has a planetarium???) on Friday nights into the unforeseeable future. Tickets to the show cost $11 and will offer you a 360° real-world, real-time video with lasers, digital star projectors, and an immersive full concert sound of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. Other artists will also be featured, including Led Zeppelin, Radiohead, Gorillaz, and maybe a few surprises.
You will like the Vancouver Laser Show if you like space, if you like drugs, or if you like a bit of both! Many people have taken to bringing comfy sleeping bags to enjoy the show while sprawled out on the floor.
The show takes place at the largely undiscovered BCIT planetarium, which is located at 3700 Willingdon Avenue, Building SW3, in Burnaby. Smoking of any substances is not permitted inside the building (because there’s not enough to go around).
