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).
