Now closed for renovations, Laserium entertained with innovative laser technology to mesmerize the audience.
The Laserium is still available for corporate events, private parties, or other special events. Today's laser experience includes 45-minute presentations to the music of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and U2. The laser shows have entertained over 20 million people, playing in 45 cities located on five continents.
Ivan Dryer started developing the technology in 1957 while working at the Griffith Observatory. Within weeks of the opening of the first laser show in 1973, over 500 people had to be turned away at the door it, because of the show's popularity. Laserium's first multimedia presentation, entitled "Crystal Odyssey," opened in 1980. Since then, the laser technology has expanded to include equipment that can be used at theme parks, trade shows, and other special events.
Visitors can take I-105 east and I-110 north for 30 minutes to reach the Laserium on Hollywood Blvd. Within a few blocks tourists can find other attractions, such as Hollywood Fantasy Tours, Architecture Tours LA, Ripley's Believe It or Not, and the Kodak Theatre.
