Light Show

Union Station  Light Show !

Take a look at this post about Union Station from three years ago. Just a stunning space. The hotel got a new owner a couple of years ago that made another large investment in the property. The Great Hall has been redecorated - not for the better IMHO - with a big, unexpected addition. For 4 or 5 minutes at every hour a light show is projected onto the barrel vault. It was somewhere between spectacular and cheesy. I admit to being fascinated but afterward if felt very inappropriate to the dignified grandeur of the room.

I'll be running with this a little further. You can form your own opinion.

I'm glad those ladies hold the lights are still there.

Light shows can be interesting. But every hour might be a bit too much.

They should try Laser Rock!

Wacky, but I think it's great if it gets people in the door. It's such an opulent room, awesome really, attached to such a depressing mall...

It's quite a contrast. The space really is grand.

The second time around--- I'd feel a bit embarrassed, I think.
