About Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon
Owing to high demand, extra dates are being scheduled, please check back shortly.
Join us for a matinee showing of our new, fulldome experience featuring 10 tracks from The Dark Side of the Moon set to stunning 360° visuals.
Pink Floyd’s iconic album ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’, originally released in March 1973, turns 50, and what more fitting a place to celebrate it and experience it than in a Planetarium, through the music set to visuals. Originally launched in London Planetarium, the idea of a show combining breath-taking views of the solar system and beyond, played out to 42 minutes of The Dark Side Of The Moon in surround sound, has been embraced by the band. NSC Creative has led the visual production efforts, working closely with Pink Floyd’s long time creative collaborator Aubrey Powell from Hipgnosis.
Each song has a different theme; some futuristically looking forward and some a retro acknowledgment to Pink Floyd’s visual history, all relating to a time and space experience, embracing up to the minute technology that only a Planetarium can offer. A truly immersive and all-encompassing surround sound and visual treat that will transcend reality and take you way beyond the realms of 2D experience.
- Suitable for ages 16+
- You can enter Thinktank from 2.30pm. The show will start promptly at 4pm with no late entry permitted; tickets are non-refundable.
- Please give yourself extra travelling time when driving to Thinktank as there are roadworks and diversions across the city centre which can cause delays.
- This spectacular fulldome film is inspired by the music of Pink Floyd, and as such contains non-astronomy content.
- It contains infrequent use of strong language, some flashing images, and visuals which may cause some people to feel a sensation of movement.
Pre-booking is essential.
