The Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium (CNCP) will host its classic laser light show this upcoming weekend, June 23 through June 25. Evening showings are planned for 7 p.m., 8 p.m., 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. Cost is $10 per show. Each show averages 40 minutes.
Laser light shows have been a popular attraction for many years at the popular Fort Myers attraction, located at 3450 Ortiz Avenue. Laser lights shows are projected laser beams and dazzling graphics that are set to music. Throughout the years, the Southwest Florida community has enjoyed this entertainment from Calusa Nature Center’s planetarium, the only one in the region. The laser shows, planned quarterly, highlight music from the likes of rock-n-roll legends Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, The Beatles, U2, B-52s and genres of music such as ElectroPop, i-Pop, Hypnotica and Laser Magic Dance.
For the youngsters, there are laser light matinees with mythical stories in light and sound, designed to engage young students and stimulate their interest in learning about the night sky. Shows for children include a light-hearted and imaginative look at the myths and stories associated with the constellations, including the Legend of Orion, a fresh retelling of the classical Greek mythology surrounding Orion, the legendary hunter, as well as Laser Perseus and Andromeda, a story filled with humorous and exciting characters including Pegasus, the winged horse; Cetus, the sea monster; Perseus, the mighty warrior; and the fearsome monster Medusa.
