NEW this year, listen to music from Queen, Beyoncé, Beastie Boys and AC/DC while being dazzled by the multicolored laser light show on the Dorrance Planetarium dome.

The Dorrance Planetarium in Phoenix, Arizona is the second planetarium in the world to have this laser system which has the largest variety of laser special effects.

Given the recent controversy surrounding Michael Jackson and out of an abundance of care for our guests and the community, we have decided to cancel the 9 p.m. Laser Michael Jackson show at our March 14, Lasers & Liquor event.

One of our goals is to offer an inclusive environment in which guests of all ages feel safe to wonder and imagine. Please accept our sincere apologies if the scheduled showing of this content has caused you any inconvenience.
