Movie-themed Attraction to Open July 1 at Universal Studios

John Landis, director of some of the most popular modern American films, is serving as creative consultant for a movie-themed nighttime entertainment show at the Universal Studios theme park in Orlando, Fla. The show is called Universal 360–A Cinesphere Spectacular and premieres July 1. Universal 360 is a first-ever combination of more than 100 great movies, which include "National Lampoon's Animal House," "The Blues Brothers," "Trading Places," "Coming to America" and "American Werewolf in London." The attraction also has a 360-degree spherical projection, lasers, pyrotechnical effects, digital mapping technology and four enormous spheres spread across acres of waterfront at Universal Studios. The spheres, which are 30-feet tall and 36-feet wide, float in the park's central lagoon and serve as giant outdoor projection screens. Digital mapping technology allows Universal Studios to project supplemental images and effects on buildings surrounding the lagoon, transforming entire buildings into walls of flames. The show also features a specially developed soundtrack broadcast through more than 300 outdoor speakers. For more information, visit [www.universalorlando.com].
