New Universal Studios Florida Nighttime Show Features Film Director John Landis as Creative Consultant
First-of-a-Kind Show Opens July 1 and Creates New Way to Experience Hundreds of Memorable Movie Moments
ORLANDO, Fla., June 26 /PRNewswire/ -- John Landis, director of some of the most popular modern American films of all time, is serving as creative consultant for an ambitious movie-themed nighttime entertainment show at the Universal Studios theme park in Orlando.
The show is called Universal 360 - A Cinesphere Spectacular and premieres July 1. Its creators set out to blend high-tech special effects with some of the most memorable moments in film history.
Universal 360 is a first-ever combination of more than 100 great movies, 360-degree spherical projection, lasers, pyro effects, digital mapping technology -- and four enormous spheres spread across acres of waterfront at Universal Studios Florida. 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 to project supplemental images and effects on buildings surrounding the lagoon -- transforming entire buildings into walls of flame. The show also features a specially developed soundtrack broadcast through more than 300 outdoor speakers.
