Rain Date!  Like spending time on your computer?  Play a few too many video games for your own good?  Ever wonder what might happen if you, well, fell in?  Our next film just might answer these questions. 

Produced in the early '80s, this early technology gem features luminous back-lit animation, combined with computer animation and live-action.  There may even be a little corporate espionage, with a side of romance.  And you might be surprised to discover the studio! 

This very original creation stars Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner, and Cindy Morgan.  It's directed by Steven Lisberger.

Showing in Room A-5, on the Lower Level.
