Wish You Were Here, 7:30 p.m.*: Dome Club Nashville presents this acclaimed 1975 album like never before – enriched with fulldome psychedelic effects.

This is not a laser show, but the next generation of computer generated imagery. *6 p.m. on Aug. 8.
The Other Side of Pink Floyd, 8:30 p.m.: If you have already explored “The Dark Side of the Moon” and want more, this Pink Floyd Cosmic Concert will expand your view farther. From Piper at the Gates of Dawn to The Division Bell and everything in between, lasers, stars, and special effects provide the ultimate accompaniment to the music of Pink Floyd.
Pink Floyd: The Dark Side of the Moon, 9:30 p.m.: Pink Floyd provides the ultimate aural environment for exploring inner and outer space. Within the planetarium chamber, the experience is enhanced with digital animation, millions of stars, and brilliant laser imagery. This album may be older than a large percentage of our audience, but the music is timeless.
Pink Floyd’s The Wall, 10:30 p.m.: Using Pink Floyd’s concept album as foundation and inspiration, Aaron McEuen and Starlight Productions of Salt Lake City have interpreted this classic album in ways never before imagined! This Dome Club Nashville presentation is like a mental struggle for sanity as told in music and fulldome digital art. Audience advisory: Adult subject matter.
