  1. Mike,

    The Doug Trumbull process was called Showscan - BRAINSTORM was originally supposed to feature it in the POV segments... never got to feature experimentation, but was actually set up in a few ShowBiz Pizza theaters in the 80's - mainly it got used for ride experiences.

    One of the promo films, New Magic, had Gerrit Graham (as a projectionist) and Sir Christopher Lee.
