“Unique Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

The presentation, particularly the footage was excellent. Not only the visual effect but also the audio virtually absorbed you into the scenes. I thought this was a very unique experience that brought to the viewer very intense and personal feelings. It gave one a better appreciation for what occurred in Normandy at the time of the Allied invasion. Certainly worth seeing.

“Typical French art - but worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

When I was there was a film on about the WW2 history which was pretty good but can be seen without the 360 effect. But what they also showed was current day footage made from (mini-)helicopter that had 4 cameras which truly shows a 360 degrees film!

“Excellent Production”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

This was fantastic, it was the best experience of the troops in the city etc and made us feel a little bit of how it must have been when the invasion was pushing through the streets. New and old street scenes mingled together is a nice touch, recomend this to everyone.

“Moving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

You say nothing, you just watch and listen. A very moving experience with then and now scenes of Normandy during D-Day.

“D-day movie”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Long wait times between movies and not a very welcoming waiting area. Movie was merged footage of D-day/WW2 and present day areas...in 360 degrees. It was interesting but not as impressive as I thought it would be. If you have time do this, but shouldn't be at the top of your list.
