There will soon be some strange things at the Vanderbilt Museum.
Christmas lights in October. Maybe some Eggo Waffles. Perhaps even a Demogorgon on the loose. These things, however, aren’t strange at all to fans of the hit Netflix show “Stranger Things.”
The Vanderbilt Museum in Centerport will be hosting a one-night “Stranger Things” event on Oct. 27 that will include a laser-light show based on the series at the site’s planetarium.
The planetarium’s lobby will be transformed into The Upside Down, the show’s dark and blue-toned alternate dimension to the real world, and also into the Byers’ living room, complete with the famous Christmas lights and alphabet wall used as a form of communication between Joyce and her missing son, Will.
Tickets to the event cost $15, with shows at 7 p.m., 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at vanderbiltmuseum.org. Attendees are encouraged to wear “Stranger Things” themed costumes to the event, which will include raffles and trivia.
The laser show, featuring soundscapes from the show and music from its 1980s setting, will continue at the planetarium on Fridays at 10 p.m. through Nov. 16.
"The Vanderbilt Museum’s Laser Stranger Things Marathon will feature the music of the hit television show," says Elizabeth Wayland-Morgan, associate director of the Vanderbilt Museum. "It’s a rocking journey back in time, and is perfect for the season."
