Phoenix Theatres at the Mall of Monroe is proud to present the Douglas Trumbull Film Forum, featuring works from the film director and cinematic visionary's entire career, emphasizing Trumbull's cinematic dream of immersive, experiential cinema through his cutting-edge MAGI technology. Trumbull himself will be in attendance to discuss his work and give a Master Class presentation of his filmmaking philosophy, process, and achievements.
Attendees will have the chance to enjoy a robust lineup of science fiction classics such as Silent Running, Brainstorm, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and a special 40th Anniversary presentation of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. In addition to an excellent lineup of classic science fiction films featuring Trumbull's exemplary work, we will be presenting "UFOTOG", Douglas Trumbull's short film that demonstrates his MAGI film process.
Those interested in doing a little exploring between screenings can visit vendors in the convention center space inside the Mall of Monroe presented and hosted in cooperation with The League of Enchantment, a 501c3 Nonprofit with the mission to work with local hospitals, Make-A-Wish, community organizations and events to bring hope and smiles to kids, and kids at heart.

Simply put, MAGI is the most immersive and realistic cinematic filming process. The technology utilizes high frame rates and special cadence of left and right eye images to better emulate human vision- the result is a drastically more immersive experience for the audience through the reduction of motion blur especially in action sequences and we believe this could be the next step in the technology behind filmmaking.
UFOTOG is a featurette written and directed by Douglas Trumbull designed to showcase the MAGI process from start to finish. It creatively demonstrates a variety of different angles, compositions and pans all created with Trumbull's MAGI technology at the center of production. UFOTOG was shot on a combined laboratory/stage/studio, with 120fps 4K 3D live action being staged inside virtual environments.
According to a Trumbull Studios press release, UFOTOG "explores a new cinematic language that invites the audience to experience a powerful sense of immersion." We invite you to personally experience UFOTOG running every half-hour during the Trumbull Film Forum because it's truly something you have to see to believe.
