LATE SHIFT: A CINEMATIC INTERACTIVE MOVIE EXPERIENCE


Friday, July 14 8:00-10:00 pm, Steven J. Ross Theater

Late Shift is the world's first cinematic interactive movie, offering viewers a unique, participatory experience. Join us for a theatrical screening of this action-thriller which allows you to make plot-changing decisions on behalf of Matt, the protagonist, in real time, using your mobile device all while the film keeps running seamlessly on the big screen. With one beginning but countless storylines and seven different endings, Late Shift is a movie that gives you the power to discover the different plot variations and make "better" decisions.

Stay afterwards for a Q&A with Late Shift Writer/Director Tobias Weber, as we explore the technology behind the film and investigate what the future holds for interactive entertainment.
