Laserium in LA

Recommended Posts

Saw the Rush Laserium show in 1984. It was pretty cool.

I would love to go see a LZ show if I could get the hubby to go too.

So they're back again, eh?

At first, I thought you had found an old article. Because this is not the FIRST time they have tried to bring Laserium back.

A few years ago, the Laserium guys took over the old, decrepit Vine St. Theatre on Hollywood Blvd. near Vine St., and after refurbishing the place, they screened Laserium shows daily. There were separate shows devoted to Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Beatles and the Doors, as well as shows compiling modern bands like Radiohead and Oasis.

Their hope was that it would be a permanent home for Laserium, as they had recently been given the boot from the Griffith Park Observatory during the Observatory's own restoration.

But the law of diminishing returns on laserium shows(it's cheaper and just as effective to take a $5 tab of acid and listen to Led Zeppelin at home...not that I'm advising you to take drugs. Kids-just say no! Do as I say, not as I do. ;) ), and the fact that it was on the worst block of Hollywood Blvd, next to The Cave, the worst and most pitiful strip club in the world, spelled D-O-O-M. They didn't last a year.

Saw plenty of laserium shows back in the 70s and 80s, though.

If the shows are any good I'm sure they will be televised

WTF? :blink:

You either posted this on the wrong thread or you clearly don't have a clue what we're talking about.

I saw a light show like that at a university once, but on a smaller scale. It was Pink Floyd's DSOTM that was playing. The best night of my 8 year old life.

Yeah the Gold Coast is probably a good spot for it, but I would prefer SYDNEY!!!!! :)

We do pretty good light shows here......
