Awesome Sci-Fi Inspired Orchestra Ads

Wow, just how brilliant are these ads for the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra's concert series Space Classics? They’ve incorporated references to some of the most well-known space movies like Star Wars, Star Trek, and 2001: A Space Odyssey in ways that are subtle yet clever.

How much fun would this event be? On September 16 and 17, make your way to the Adelaide Entertainment Centre Theatre in Australia to hear this 55 piece orchestra play songs from those three famous movies as well as music from Superman and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

If you thought this was a stuffy affair, you’d be wrong. Not only can you expect to see some of your favorite space characters dressed up in the foyer, you’re encouraged to dress up as your favorite space character for a chance to win a copy of the Star Wars Saga on Blue-ray. Geeky great!
