The University of Saint Francis and the Edwin Clark Schouweiler Memorial Planetarium present: WinterFest 2016 Weekend One, opening Friday, February 19 with a weekend of laser light shows through Sunday, February 21.
There will be four different music laser light shows on the hour beginning at 6 p.m., Friday, February 19 and concluding with Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” at the 9 p.m. show. In the event of a Pink Floyd sellout on Friday, the planetarium will offer a 10 p.m. encore for anyone unable to purchase tickets for the 9 p.m. performance and willing to return for the 10 p.m. show.
On Saturday, February 20, beginning at 6 p.m., there will be four different music laser light shows on the hour, concluding with Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of The Moon” at 9 p.m. In the event of a Pink Floyd sellout on Saturday, the planetarium will offer a 10 p.m. encore for anyone unable to purchase tickets for the 9 p.m. performance.
Weekend One will conclude on Sunday, February 21, with the final laser music light show at 5:30 p.m.
The evening musical laser light shows are for middle school ages through adults. The planetarium staff strongly recommends that younger children attend the 3 p.m. family matinees offered on Saturday, February 20 and Sunday February 21 instead of the music laser light shows. The matinees feature legendary stories of the night sky for children and accompanying adults.
Ticket prices for all WinterFest Weekend One laser light shows are:
$6.00 – Adults
$4.00 – Children
$18.00 – Maximum charge per family (two adults and their dependent children)
Full show schedules, playlists for each show and ticket pricing can be found on the Schouweiler Planetarium’s web site: planetarium.sf.edu.
