Lionsgate is teaming with Parques Reunidos to bring a Lionsgate-branded indoor entertainment center to New York City’s Times Square in 2019. Lionsgate Entertainment City will feature 13 different attractions aimed at teens and young adults.

Among the offerings featured, there will be:

  • Mad Men themed “dining and lounge experience.”
  • a Hunger Games flying simulator attraction
  • a Divergent-themed obstacle course
  • John Wick: Chapter Two shooting ride where fans will fire fake guns at a series of assailants
  • a 4D film and live theater (which I’m assuming could be easily switched out with new content)
  • a Lionsgate Café
  • a Hunger Games-inspired Peeta’s Bakery and The Capitol Confectionery
  • the first-ever Lionsgate Studio Store
  • and virtual reality entertainment, including a Nerve VR motorcycle experience.

Find out more about Lionsgate Entertainment City, after the jump.

dealt trailer

As you probably know by now, I’m a magic fanatic. I’ve written in the past about my favorite magic movies, and even my audition experience joining Los Angeles’ prestigious Magic Castle as a magician member. One of the movies I was really bummed to have missed at Sundance this year is a documentary titled Dealt about Richard Turner, one of the greatest card magicians of our time.

I’ve seen Turner perform in the close-up gallery at the Castle and his card skills are some of the best I’ve ever seen. The fact that he is a blind man is just insane. And it’s not something that is advertised. He isn’t introduced as a blind man, it’s only five or so minutes into his routine that the audience begins to realize that the amazing card feats they’ve been watching have been performed by a person without the ability to see. Hit the jump now to watch the Dealt trailer and get a glimpse of Richard Turner in action.
