Experience ‘Stranger Things’ at Vanderbilt Special Event, Laser Show Marathon

Filed under: Arts & Entertainment,Centerport,Hamlets,News |
Are you a fan of the addictive, cult-hit television series Stranger Things?
 
If so, you will not want to miss the Vanderbilt Museum’s special, one-night Stranger Things event and marathon of the new laser-light show based on the series – set for Saturday, October 27, at the Vanderbilt’s Charles and Helen Reichert Planetarium at 7:00, 8:00 and 9:00 p.m. The Museum and Planetarium are located at 180 Little Neck Road, Centerport, N.Y.
 

All tickets are $15. With intense TV audience interest in the show, this event may sell out quickly, so early ticket purchase is highly recommended.

 

Grab your Eggos and travel to The Upside Down! With flickering Christmas lights, enjoy an eerie experience filled with decor and music until the Demogorgon falls asleep! 
 
Don’t be a mouth breather! Costumes from Stranger Things are highly encouraged, so make sure you’re dressed to the 11s.
 
The Planetarium lobby will be transformed into Will’s Living Room and The Upside Down. The evening includes a raffle and Stranger Things trivia questions – each Laser Stranger Things showing will have a prize winner. 
 
Laser Stranger Things will be shown at the Planetarium on Fridays at 10:00 p.m. through November 16.
