The AMC theater at Universal Studios Hollywood’s CityWalk is holding a special event to celebrate the arrival of the new Furious 7 movie. Advance screenings of Furious 7 will be held starting every seven minutes after the hour beginning on Thursday, April 2. The AMC Theatre will also bridge the gap to this latest film with a two-day movie marathon at CityWalk, featuring all previous six Fast & Furious films on Tuesday, March 31 and Thursday, April 2.
The Furious 7 takeover provides guests with an exclusive opportunity to get up close and personal with genuine artifacts from the new movie, including the 1967 Camaro that character Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) drives. Located on CityWalk, outside the AMC Theatre, the grey muscle car—with its 500 horsepower and 4×4 tires—offers fans a picture perfect photo opp through Sunday, April 5.
Wardrobe worn by Dominic “Dom” Toretto (Vin Diesel) and Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) will also be on display exclusively at the AMC Theatres from Friday, March 20 through Friday, April 10.
CityWalk’s outdoor concert venue, “5 Towers,” will celebrate the Furious 7 takeover with a D.J. party spinning songs from the film series’ entire music library, including new sounds from the latest movie soundtrack as part of the opening weekend festivities from Thursday, April 2 through Saturday, April 4.
Tickets for the film and the movie marathon can be purchased at www.CityWalkHollywood.com.
Fast and Furious Supercharged
Coming very soon is the new finale to the Studio Tour, Fast and Furious Supercharged. A new, next-level mix of 3DHD technology and practical effects will soon thrust tram guests into the middle of the action, speeding along at “perceived speeds” of 120 miles an hour.
An elaborate new soundstage, thematically designed to represent a giant abandoned automotive repair shop, was constructed on the legendary backlot to house this new mega-attraction.
The sprawling new structure has impressive stats:
- Building size: 65,000 square feet
- Length: 809 feet, longer than two football fields, end to end.
- Height: 58 feet
- Width: 140 feet at its widest point
- Screen: one continuous compound curved screen spanning nearly 400 feet in length and 40 feet in height to fully encircle Studio Tour guests
- Projectors: 34 – 4K projectors
- Audio: 80,000 watts at 108 decibels of sound will emanate from 56
highly efficient speakers, with 44 discrete audio channels strategically situated throughout the attraction and located behind the massive screen, which is filled with millions of holes to enable streamlined directional audio.
Universal released a first-look at the making of the film aspect of the attraction below.
