“How to Train Your Dragon 2” + newly added screening of the Electronic Theater



Based on a spike in demand for seeing the Electronic Theater during the conference week, SIGGRAPH has just added a 3rd night in hopes of allowing everyone an opportunity to see it.

“We decided to add a 3rd showing of the Electronic Theater based on the incredible demand for the first two nights – which are near sell outs,” said Jerome Solomon, SIGGRAPH 2014 Computer Animation Festival Director from Cogswell College. “Making it a double feature with this epic DreamWorks film will make it a night to remember for many years to come. We highly encourage people to plan ahead if they want to attend the double feature.”

According to Solomon, the room will be cleared after the first film and only those with valid Wednesday Electronic Theater tickets will be allowed back inside for the final public viewing of the Electronic Theater.

The special screening of “How to Train Your Dragon 2” will be presented by the movie’s head of layout, Gil Zimmerman (DreamWorks Animation, which offers special souvenirs to the first attendees in line).
