Universal Studios Florida Previewing Cinematic Spectacular

Universal Studios Florida is currently previewing their expansive nighttime spectacular to guests of the theme park.  The show, named Universal's Cinematic Spectacular: 100 Years of Movie Memories, takes place on the park's central lagoon and is able to be viewed from just about anywhere near the water, making it able to accommodate many guests each evening.

Several large water fall projection screens, lighting, fountains, and fireworks are used along with footage of some of Universal's most famous movie moments that is narrated by Morgan Freeman.   Lighting dots not only the fountains and screens, but also the buildings along the water, helping to create a complete environment for the performance.

The show's full debut is May 8th, but many guests are lucky enough to catch a preview during their visits before then. 

The show certainly has its own vibe, and is not exactly what I expected when the grand nature of the production was announced.  It can be hard to gauge a nighttime show from video, but if you want to try Inside the Magic has a great quality video of the whole show, plus many photos and information on viewing.
