George is a modern-day traveler literally stuck in movie history, looking for a way out. Ever so soon having fallen in love with Marguerite, he stumbles from one film classic into another, taking him from the silent movie era right through the high tech blockbusters of the late 1990's. Every now and then George bumps into Marguerite once again so he can further kindle his blooming affair with her. As the journey unfolds, the audience literally won't stay untouched and will wonder just as hard as George and Marguerite do: where does it all end? Written by Swie Tio <sweet_t_prod@hotmail.com>

Unmissable stuff for movie buffs!
12 August 2011 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

I almost passed on the rather innocuous sounding CinéMagique at Disneyland Paris in favour of another ride on the exhilarating Twilight Zone Tower of Terror; I'm glad that I didn't, because this ingenious, 'interactive' trip through the history of cinema is also tremendous fun (albeit less likely to give you a heart attack!).

At the end of a short pre-movie introduction, a Disneyland crew member reminds members of the audience to switch off their mobile phones during the performance, but despite this timely reminder, a loud ring tone can be heard only a few minutes into the film, the inconsiderate owner of the phone answering the call and proceeding to hold a loud conversation about his lost luggage. He gets his comeuppance, however, when the on-screen actors become annoyed at his behaviour and magically whisk him into their cinematic realm.

Having broken the 'fourth wall', the man (now played by Martin Short) wanders perilously through a variety of cinema classics, pursued by a beautiful silent-movie actress (Julie Delpy) who has fallen in love with him (only in a movie!), resulting in much hilarity.

While razor-sharp editing and fancy visual special effects ensure the seamless integration of Martin Short's character into the great selection of timeless movie moments, the specially equipped theatre throws a few additional surprises at the audience to ensure maximum enjoyment.
