Imagine you are a TRON fan, desperately killing time until the December 17 release of TRON: Legacy.

Well, Disney is more than happy to oblige. They are opening the TRON: Legacy Pop Up Shop on November 19 in Culver City, CA for six weeks. Yes, a TRON store is opening. It’ll have all kind of unique TRON merchandise, a TRON cafe, art exhibit and much more. No original Blu-ray though. It’s open though December 23. Hit the jump for a ton of additional information including a release schedule, gallery of merchandise samples, the address and more.
