characters will be almost life size! Additionally, the Cinemation Thrill
Theatre traveling semi will be making a one night stop on the Reitz Union's
North Terrace. Cinemation is a mobile 3D Motion Theater. All seats in the
theater are mounted on a hydraulic base so that all the motion of the movie
is felt by the audience. The theater also has environmental effects so that
rain, wind, etc. will also be experienced by the audience (if it is raining
in the movie, you get wet). There is also something called leg ticklers so
the audience will feel things like spiders or snakes trying to crawl up
their legs. Smells have been added so that things like pine trees and ocean
air will be smelled by the audience. Finally, this week's film is Catch Me
If You Can and will be played only once in the Reitz Union Amphitheater (in
front of the pond) at 10pm. All events listed above are free to UF students
