The Saint Louis Science Center’s (5050 Oakland Avenue, St. Louis; 314-289-4400) popular classic laser light shows are back. After a successful run in July, the show is launching once more with tickets on sale today, October 1.

Music includes hits from The Beatles, ‘90s alt-rock, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. The shows will play the music as laser artwork, “immersive lighting” and 3D atmospheric effects conquer the walls of the McDonnell Planetarium.

To add to the effect of the shows taking place while spooky season is in full swing, the lineup includes “Fright Light,” which will have music from Michael Jackson, Black Sabbath, Will Smith and more Halloween-type hits.

Shows take place from October 22 to October 31. Tickets are $10.95 for non-members and $9.95 for members, with proceeds helping support the center’s educational and STEAM programs. Parking is included. Purchase tickets online at
