Last night, the first public preview of Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular: 100 Years of Movie Memories took place at Universal Studios at Universal Orlando. The show officially opens on May 8, 2012. Scroll down for video of the show.
The new nighttime show in the Universal Studios lagoon, highlights 100 years of the most fun, dramatic and awe-inspiring moments in film. The show is narrated by award-winning actor Morgan Freeman. Movies that are featured in the show include Back to the Future, E.T: The Extraterrestrial, and many tens of other classic Universal films. It brings together cutting-edge waterfall screens within the Universal Studios lagoon and surrounded by colorful fountains, state of the art lighting and pyrotechnics.
Here’s our multi-camera video of the full show at the first technical rehearsal. Remember things may change from now until the official opening:
While previews have begun, the show will only run on select unannounced nights until the official grand opening on May 8, 2012. The show will then run all summer and then on select nights through the end of the year. The new day-time parade, Universal’s Superstar Parade will also debut on May 8, 2012.
