Notes
  
Crazy Wheels197914:30You're in the middle of a pack of Crazy Speed Kings as they race for a million dollar prize. Try to keep from crashing as you race at blinding speeds in every kind of vehicle. Funny Cars, Jaguars, antique cars, "boss" trucks, motorcycles, and the latest Excaliber Roadster.

You'll speed past Howard Hughes' "Spruce Goose", the world's largest airplane. Hang from a jet helicopter as it soars over ocean cliffs, mountains and cities.

"Crazy Wheels" is high speed antics, crashes and head-ons plus a hurtling roller coaster, a bone numbing Alpine Slide and a raging water chute.
 
Flight 7471913:30Your body vibrates from sounds of tremendous power. Unexpectedly, the length and breadth of a massive fuselage fills your view. Huge wheels swing down. Suddenly you're piloting a Boeing 747 to a wheels smoking touch down. Your heart quickens with each grinding click as you slowly ascend the coaster's steep incline until you're let go to fall free down hills of twisting steel. Zoom in on romantic Rio de Janeiro, Copacabana Beach and the majestic 1230 foot high Christ Statue. Travel to Iguacu Falls, higher than Niagara and wider than Victoria. Panic on a runaway train as the brakes screech to a life-saving halt. Marvel at miles of gorgeous skyhigh views in North Cascade National Park.

Ride a giant coaster through the longest double loop in the world. Put your helmet on for a dirt-spinning dune-buggy race. Circle the volcanic rim of Mount St. Helens and dive headlong into the still smoldering crater. Somebody's putting "the pedal to the metal" and Smokey is in hot pursuit.
 
Wild Wild West1912:00Over ten minutes of dynamic chase scenes on dune buggies in a desert, in a Trans-Am pursued by the California Highway Patrol, in helicopters, airplanes, speedboats, hobie cats, and more. A super series of colossal scenery and fun experiences, filmed in Las Vegas, Arizona, and California. Ride a corkscrew steel roller coaster and the outrageous shuttle loop coaster appropriately named "Montezuma's Revenge". See and hear Las Vegas at night, experience sensational snow skiing and spectacular panoramic aerial cinematography.
 
Horizons198211:00Feel what it is like to race down the hills and through the turns of one of the truly great old wooden roller coasters. Twist down a narrow mountain road in a high powered sports car just before it plunges off a mile high cliff. Swim into the depths of Hawaii's clear blue water and encounter face to face a huge man-eating Tiger Shark. Leap off a mountain and soar in a hang glider. Take a wild jetcopter flight past scenic splendor and plunge into an erupting volcano with tons of molten lava all around you.
 
International Thrill Show1911.30The slow, agonizing ascent to the top of the "Giant Dipper" roller coaster, the momentary pause and socko! You hurtle into a sweaty palm, fear-thrill plunge of blurring speed and color. Delight to the midway kaleidoscope of dazzling lights, the "Sky Wheel" and the tight quick serpentine turns of the jumbo "Jet Coaster". Thundering hoofs and clattering wheels - hang on to your Stetson because you're in the Calgary Stampede Chuck Wagon Race. A sudden lurch - you fear the worst as the brakes give out on a San Francisco cable car. Helplessly you gain momentum down the steep stair step hill until, at last, a nerve shattering stop. Your boat winds through the exotic color and floral variety of beautiful Cypress Gardens. Skim over the tall grass in an Everglades air boat. Strain the engine on an aerobatic Pitt Special as you climb toward the sun. Then plummet to earth, defying gravity in a loop-to-loop that brings your belly to your chin. Marvel at the misty, cascading beauty of Niagara Falls. Fly through the glistening St. Louis Arch. Glide over the rim of Grand Canyon and wind along the Colorado River. Follow a Cadillac to an eye-popping standstill.
 
Blockbuster1912:00An awesome ten story plunge, four loops and the hair-raising Kamakazi curve will thrill you on the "Orient Express" roller coaster. Churn through thundering rapids aboard free floating rafts. Plummet down a steep mountain to a hair-raising stop on an incline train. Lurch and sway before a runaway baby carriage comes to a teetering stop. Circle the 605 foot high Seattle Space Needle. Take a body jarring Olympic bobsled run at Lake Placid. Single-winged crop dusters defy gravity in skilled aerobatic maneuvers. Atlanta's city streets are alive with action as motorcycle police pursue a speeder.
 
Thrills of America1911:00Hang on to your lap bar as the "Monster" lifts and spins. Conquer the "Python" roller coaster - 1,200 feet of tortuous steel. Weave down San Francisco's famous Lombard Street. Be mesmerized by the night time dazzle of Las Vegas. Take a reckless wheel gripping dune buggy ride. Gaze at the photo dramatic sweep of the majestic Grand Canyon and its unyielding sculptor, the Colorado River. Spiral down Peachtree Plaza, the worlds tallest hotel, towering 723 feet above Atlanta. Your "Olds" is running fine until you have to make a hair-raising stop.
 
Demon Shock1914:30"Demon Shock", although a departure from anything else in the Cinema 180 library, is a terrorific, spine tingling horror fantasy with extraordinary scares, stunts, special effects and nightmarish creatures. Blackness, eerie groaning and shuffling footsteps alert you to danger. A flickering candle casts a glow on the face of a young woman. She is searching for a gravestone. One stone, covered with bizarre gargoyle carvings, shakes and topples as a grotesque hand extends from the grave.

The girl screams and runs as more and more of the creature un-earths itself. A mad Ghoul, half-dead, half-alive, unlocks his dreaded power of "psycho-physical separation". His arm detaches from his body and shoots through the misting midnight air to grasp the victim's throat.

It doesn't stop there! Hang on! With siren screaming, a police car pursues the Ghoul's strange weapon laden hearse. The escaping Ghoul activates the "Terror Coaster" with his ominous laser eye. Follow an unsuspecting couple into the "House of Demons". Be shocked by the mad Ghoul's sudden appearance. Cheer the hero who destroys the terrible Ghoul and his gruesome morgue factory.

Disclaimer: "Demon Shock" has realistic frightening scenes and is not recommended for small children.
 
Galaxy of Thrills1911:30Take an excursion to the threshold of fear on the "Thunder Bolt" roller coaster. Whirl through the "Mind Bender" roller coaster with an 80 foot dive, triple loop and two vertical somersaults. Finesse your way through flying Dutch rolls and "shoot the bowl" with a world champion skateboarder. Your stunt car explodes off a tunnel ramp. A high pitched siren pierces your senses. Suddenly a long red hook and ladder rushing to a fire streaks past. You're hanging on for dear life as you swing around sharp corners. Anxiety mounts as a woman, pushing a baby carriage, steps into the path of the oncoming fire truck. "Hang Ten" on a high crest off Waikiki Beach. Marvel at steep, volcanic canyons covered with lush green tropical foliage in Kauai, Hawaii. Swing to and fro on an ornate Viking vessel. Big Ben rises commanding-ly as you clutch the handle of a London taxi during rush hour. A skilled driver shifts his purring Porsche into the fast lane. Overtaking all competition, he whirls through narrow hairpin turns to a screeching halt.
 
Impact1913:30The "Revolution" coaster takes you through daring dips and dives along 3,657 feet of spiraling track. A tunnel transports you into a spectacular galactic star field. Suddenly you're on skis schussing a slalom course. Raft the cresting rapids of the Chattanooga River. Take an Everglades airboat ride and recoil from a venom-dripping poisonous snake. Hope you don't plunge into the Mediterranean on a heart stopping drive along a narrow cliff lined highway. Fly over Paris, New York's Statue of Liberty, the Sears Tower in Chicago, under a Mississippi River bridge and through the treacherous volcanic Na Pali coastal mountain range in Hawaii. Take a fast paced mound-leaping motor-cross race. Screech and crash as Grandma takes a hilarious drive to a shopping mall.
 
Cavalcade of Thrills1913:00"Mister Twister" roller coaster zips you through 360 degree curves, a pitch black tunnel, and a white knuckle drop. Your adrenalin mounts as an on-coming train roars towards a car stalled on the tracks and a woman frozen in shock. Cold bites your face as your snowmobile dodges trees in the splendorous Utah mountains. Round each curve faster and faster as a "high-ballin" 18 wheeler swerves down the twisting Big Sur highway and plunges headlong over the cliff into the rocky sea below. Breathtaking aerial views of the rugged California Coast, Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Skyline and Grand Canyon. Laugh at a frantic boater in Newport Beach Harbor. Plunge 114 feet at 65 miles per hour on the "Loch Ness Monster", one of the tallest, fastest, fiercest roller coasters in the world. A sudden exit from heavy high speed traffic brings you to a bug-eyed stop behind a huge garbage truck.
 
Fantastic Flights1912:00Pull 5-G's as you fly with the U.S. Air Force "Thunderbirds". Circle the Statue of Liberty, fly under the bridges of New York, and see the spectacular Manhattan Skyline. Ride wild on the Texas Cyclone. Take off and land a Lockheed L1011. Thrill to a 300 mph runaway train, the double loop of the "Loch Ness Monster", and a bandit motorcycle chase through old Europe. Have a laugh on us when the camera chase vehicle, in an unrehearsed scene, accidentally crashes into a dump truck with a load of sand.
 
Pacific Pursuit1912:30Rocket along orange ribbons of high tensile coaster steel. Dangle from an aerial gondola high above Lake Wakatipu. View "The Remarkables", the towering mountain peaks overlooking Queenstown, New Zealand. Take a madcap taxi ride through downtown Auckland. See colossal 14,000 foot high snow-covered glaciers. Bounce across miles of gigantic Pismo Beach sand dunes on speedy ATVs. Fearsome Maori Warriors perform the Tongue Waggling Fire Dance. Escape a laser equipped helicopter as it pursues your speeding car. Skim over thrashing rapids on a famed "Shotover" jet boat. Soar 1,500 feet over Sutherland Falls. Dive into the mysterious ocean depths of the Fiji Islands amidst dazzling tropical fish. Plunge into the fire, smoke and molten lava of the White Island Volcano.
 
Colossus1912:00Drive a runaway "boss truck" into a head-on collision. Scream aboard the world's fastest twin coaster. Fly your fighter jet upside down just a few feet above the desert floor. Gasp over 300 foot high Virginia Falls and Canada's scenic Far North. Soar over glistening Acapulco in an uplifting parakite ride. Feel what it's like to fall from a 20 story skyscraper and dive 100 feet with world renowned cliff divers. Careen through the narrow streets of a Mexican village to a bone crushing crash ending.
 
Interstate 1801911:26 
Zoom199012:30Follow the misadventures of Charlie Camcorder as he records and shows you videos of his vacations. Plunge off a 300 foot high bridge, zig-zag through pylons while dangling from a helicopter. Airboat through the Florida Everglades with Charlie as a novice navigator; thrill with him as he experiences snowmobiling, dune buggies, racing through Miami Harbor and careening down a mine shaft to a surprise ending.

"Circus Magic"198612*"Circus Magic"

The pageantry, thrills, excitement and drama of this circus spectacular explodes off the screen in ESI 3-D. From the Ringmaster to the Circus Parade you see each act as never before - close up and coming at you.
Better duck! Those crazy clowns are about to throw a pail of water.

Crack! Surrounded by snarling, ferocious, big cats the trainer's whip and chair are his only defense as he sends them through hoops of fire straight at you.

A stunning trapeze artist turns high above the center ring. On each swing she reaches toward you.

Delight to the Magician's slight of hand. Reach out to touch the doves and colorful scarfs as they float in mid-air.

You are the target of a masked knife thrower hurling one deadly dagger after another.

You'll gasp as the fire juggler's flaming torches nearly singe your hair.

Will he make it? A motorcycle and its rider precariously balanced on a cable, climb toward the lights. Slow angled ascension turns to disaster as bike and rider slide out of control.

There's more! Horseback Riders tumbling, elephants trumpeting, and acrobats bouncing.

*Available for lease only. Length approximately 12 minutes. Foreign Language Narrations and Sponsor Titles available.
 
"Magic Reef"198913 With young diving enthusiasts we explore the coral reefs and marine life of the Red Sea. Through our dive masks we see and reach to touch comical, spiny puffers, polka dotted balloon fish, electric blue and yellow spotted rays, immense and ancient Napoleon fish. Translucent jelly fish drift through our fingers. Displaying territorial behavior, a menacing moray eel emerges for a nose to nose encounter. Shimmering clouds of glass fish scatter in streams of sunlight. A leopard shark startles reef fish into a frenzied flight. A majestic 5 ton manta ray glides silently through the abyss, oblivious to his entourage of pilot fish and a shark seeking protection in the 17 foot span of his wing tips. Delicate and deadly fire fish with lace fringes drift like a choir of ethereal angels in an inky grotto. The magic of polarized light and ESI 3-D lets us see beyond the screen into the depths in a dramatic new experience.

"The Magic Egg"198515 "The Magic Egg" is the world's first totally synthesized giant-screen movie. All the pictures were created on computers. All the sounds were created on synthesizers. The film represents the leading edge of computer graphics, electronic music, and 70mm format film-making.
 
"The Magic Egg" is the biggest computer graphics project ever undertaken and the most unique film ever produced. It is a high-tech wonder that staggers the imagination with over a dozen computer animation sequences beginning with a geodesic egg form floating through space and then plunging on a voyage to earth for high speed exploration of Chicago streets and buildings. A beat-ing heart inside a giant man-like robot surrounds all eyes and ears. The audience reaches out to touch the petals as they float through a vast flower field. The overall effect of these and many more sequences is combination of pure art with a sensory experience never before seen on a motion picture screen.

Lease Price: $27,000 U.S./year

"Heads Up"  The world overhead suddenly opens up and comes to life amid shrieks, squeals of joy, laughter, involuntary ducks of the head, and wonder at the spectacle being shown on the vast hemispherically shaped screen.

Thunder rumbling in the distance erupts into jagged bolts of lightning.

Audiences delight at the color and pageantry of a circus parade, spectacular acrobatic balancing, juggling and the stunning artist turning and swinging on the trapeze. Crack! Wide eyed excitement awaits inside the big cats cage. Watch out! That huge elephant is going to crush you.

Plunge down a hill of two steel ribbons into a twisting double loop coaster.

Las Vegas' famed night lights dazzle overhead. Show girls high step their way through a raucous display of mud wrestling.

A genuine Mississippi River Boat passes under looming iron bridges.

Opposing football teams collide as the band marches all around.

Screech - Crash! Oh no! That crane is dropping that wrecked car right on top of you!

Lost in a dark cave. Damp moist air cools the fear. Nearly touching a nest of spiders causes a scream that excites a swarm of bats. Attempting escape sets off an avalanche of rocks. After a near-miss, there is no escape from the fearsome stalagmonster.
 
    
   

MotionMaster Film Library
Distributed by Omni Films International, Inc.

    
   Program I:

Omni Films currently has three hours of existing high impact point of view thrill scenes available. Footage includes top roller coasters from around the World, runaway trains, car chases, flight acrobatics, motor cycle races, helicopter rides over, through and under some of nature's and man's greatest wonders and much more.

"Brainstorm" produced and directed by Douglas Trumball and star-ring Natalie Wood, Christopher Walken, Cliff Robertson and Louise Fletcher, features eleven point of view scenes from Omni Films movie library including the "Loch Ness Monster", roller coaster, Lake Placid bobsled run, snowmobiling in Utah, Grand Canyon, Golden Gate Bridge, surfboarding, and a runaway tractor trailer.

Customers are encouraged, with the assistance of Omni Films, to create their own 2 1/2 - 5 minute film(s) by selecting various scenes from the existing library. Once selected the scenes will be composed into a film and programmed for synchronization with the Motion Master seats.

Annual Lease Price: $20,000 to $25,000 for each 2 1/2 to 5 minute adventure including one film print with computer program.

Program II:

Omni Films is currently in production on new themed Motion Master point of view footage. The first film will be a Space Adventure where each viewer will experience flying a star fighter. This film will be ready for release in March, 1990. The second film will highlight U.S. Naval Aviation on board a U.S.A. aircraft carrier. A former "Top Gun" instructor will coordinate the shoot. Other scripts for themed adventures are being drafted. They include a submarine chase, a military tank ride, journey to the center of the earth and flight into the "eye" of a hurricane.

Annual Lease Price: Depending on film cost and program complexity, these 2 1/2 to 5 minute themed adventures are expected to lease for $30,000 to $50,000 each, including one film print with computer program.

Program III:

Some Motion Master theater locations, such as shopping malls, are expected to have a higher demand for film adventures because of increased repeat visitation. Operators of such Motion Master theaters are encouraged to participate in an annual film leasing program which allows access to the Motion Master film library. The annual lease price will be determined by the number of film adventures and prints required.

Program IV:

In the last 12 years as a film production company, Omni Films has talked to a number of entrepreneurial companies and individuals who would like to be involved in making a movie and running a 70mm theater. Omni Films, therefore, offers a fourth option where the Motion Master customer may enter into a contractual agreement to participate in the production of a film. In return the customer will receive rights to use the film exclusively in his market area and share in the revenues generated from distribution to Motion Master theaters in his own country and internationally.

Besides custom film production Omni Films can also provide 70mm custom film titles and/or promotional film trailers for exhibitors and their sponsors.
