8 pm – Night Sky, Live! – Purchase Tickets
This live-lecture presentation by an astronomy educator uses the Reichert Planetarium’s Starball to show the audience what the Long Island night sky above them will look like on the very day they visit. This “traditional” planetarium program highlights seasonal constellations, stars and year-round celestial events.
9 pm – Haunted Skies – Purchase Tickets
Come along on a journey of exploration into the origins of this magnificent and often misunderstood holiday. We travel to the ancient past to uncover the origins of Halloween and give some insight as to why we still celebrate this autumn tradition today. Spine-tingling and certainly not for the faint of heart, this program echoes the spirit of the holiday in an enjoyable, intelligent and often “frightening” planetarium production. Find out for yourself what lurks in the starry skies above. Narrated by Ray Adell.
10 pm – Pink Floyd: The Wall – Purchase Tickets
Pink Floyd’s The Wall, a cult favorite, is considered one of the best classic-rock albums of all time. Released in 1979, it is regarded as a continual story rather than a collection of individual songs, according to Audio Visual Imagineering (AVI), which created the show. The Wall is the tale of a rock star named Pink and his downward spiral into madness. This gripping and spellbinding musical journey is beautiful, haunting, powerful and thought-provoking. This timeless classic, one of Pink Floyd’s best, became the group’s second bestseller behind Dark Side of the Moon.Purchase Tickets
