Led-Zeppelin to rock the Imaginarium

February 11, 2013 9:00 am

For the first time on campus, WCC will present a cosmological light show this spring at Hokulani Imaginarium featuring the music of famous ’70s English band Led Zeppelin.

The shows will run on Feb. 27, April 24, and June 26 beginning at 7 p.m. and lasting for an hour. Tickets can be purchased at the door or by making reservations by contacting (808) 235-7433.

“There is something about Led Zeppelin that’s classic and timeless,” said Imaginarium manager Mary Beth Laychak.

This is not a show just for the stargazers sitting on rooftops waiting to catch a glimpse of a shooting star.

Instead, this is an audience interaction-based production that is educational and entertaining — a 360-degree experience never to be forgotten.

A control panel on each of the 85 seats allows the viewers the opportunity to not just visualize the show; it allows them to be a part of the show. The visual is produced by a premier projector system called the Digistar II, which allows the audience to experience the illusion of reality. WCC’s Imaginarium is a huge playground for the mind.

“We have a lot of fun doing the shows” said Laychak. The Imaginarium will also show other features such as “Tales of the Maya Skies,” “Stargazing,” “Astronaut,” “Perfect Little Planet,” “Earth, Moon, and Sun,” “Maunakea: Between Earth and Sky,” “Stars,” and “Two Small Pieces of Glass.”

The costs are $7 for general admission, $6 for UH students, military or seniors(65+) with ID, $5 children ages 4-12, and free for children under the age of 4 (cash only at box office).

    Come play in the sandbox

      “Riders ready. Watch the gate.” The gate slams down and the race begins. Big jumps, deep turns and steep backsides await racers of all ages daring enough to take their bikes through the Sand Island BMX racecourse. BMX or bicycle motocross began in the early 1970s in Southern California when young cyclists began riding motocross tracks for fun. Racing […]

    Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT): Searching for answers

    Protests over the building of the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) on Mauna Kea have sparked controversy and soul-searching among WCC students and faculty. Some say the mountain is sacred, and the project should be stopped for cultural and environmental reasons; others argue that astronomy was respected by ancient Hawaiians and the telescope is following in that tradition. Supporters also say […]

    Young bids WCC ‘ohana farewell

    Keep in mind as you read this month’s Ka ‘Ohana — it is a special issue. Ka ‘Ohana’s advisor and journalism and English professor Elizabeth “Libby” Young is set to retire this June after 35 years of teaching at Windward Community College. Through her years of teaching, Young has, no doubt, influenced many students. Whether in her classes for only […]

    How informed are we?

    Are Americans apathetic about current events? Do we rely on social media for our news? Ka ‘Ohana recently conducted a poll on campus to see if these concerns were true. Sixty-two students were given questions and asked NOT to use their mobile devices to look up answers. The idea for the poll stemmed from a recent article by journalist Glenn […]

    Rebuilding hale and Hawaiian culture

    If you’re studying art, you need a studio. If it’s science, you need a lab. But to nurture a garden for kalo (taro) as well as new generations of Hawaiian Studies students, you need a hale — a thatched wooden structure symbolizing the strength of a whole culture. That’s the 19-by-40-foot structure you see next to Hale A‘o near the […]

    Thirty Meter Telescope on Mauna Kea?

    I believe the people in protest of the TMT to be built on Mauna Kea have legitimate reasons to be outraged. Thirteen telescopes are already built on the land and to have this one built would demolish five acres of land. However, this is no ordinary telescope; it propels Hawai‘i not only literally but figuratively in the pursuit of astronomical […]

    How many hours a day do you spend on social media? What are the impacts of this technology on society?

    In total, possibly two hours. Social skills, communication and physicality all go out the window. On one hand, we have not been more connected as a people. Conversely, we have not been more disconnected to the people around us. We drown ourselves in technology and become dependent on it in a way that cripples us as individuals and as a […]
