DENTON (UNT), Texas — On Aug. 18 (Thursday), the Sky Theater at the University of North Texas will premiere a new entertainment program featuring computer animated images set to the music of the The Wall, the historic 1979 album by British rock group Pink Floyd.

The program will play throughout the Fall 2011 semester on Thursdays at 9 p.m. and Saturdays at 9:30 p.m. in room 150 in the Environmental Science Building, located on the northwest corner of Avenue C and West Mulberry (1704 W. Mulberry St.).

Tickets are $6 for UNT students, faculty and staff with UNT ID and $7 for the general public. Only cash or check is accepted. The theater box office will open 30 minutes prior to showings for ticket sales.

This unique combination of visual art and animation is set to Pink Floyd's music from the album of the same name. The UNT Sky Theater is the only theater in Texas showing this visual feast. The program was created by Aaron McEuen at the Utah-based Starlight Productions, which creates planetarium shows for venues around the world. UNT showed The Dark Side of the Moon during Spring 2011.

The computer animated video will be shown in the planetarium’s 100-seat, 40-foot domed theater equipped with the Digistar III projection system that can reproduce the night's sky with digital precision. This is no ordinary planetarium show of the stars and planets. UNT planetarium and astronomy laboratory director Ron “Starman” Dilulio describes the show as a 3D experience without the glasses.
