A wonderful Showscan movie
11 November 2005 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

This was one of the movies that Showscan produced for the Showscan theaters which were located in 4 Showbiz Pizza Places around the country. While it had a plot, it helped to showcase the incredible visual and aural experience of Showscan.

The Showscan film process showed a 70mm anamorphic film at 60 unique frames per second, in a short-throw theater with a bright quartz-halogen light. This produced incredible realism on the screen. This movie showed many scenes of dune buggies, with cameras mounted on them. This movie was produced prior to the Showscan movies with the articulated seats. This movie is probably not available for viewing anywhere.
