I was here for a fantastic night hosted by the University of Notre Dame! Of course, people from Notre Dame tend to be the most sincere, humble, and personal people you’ll find. This night was no different and the students and alumni films were incredible!

$50 for this is not money well spent. You wait in a multi-storey car park and are guided by a disinterested tour guide who gives the impression he would rather be somewhere else. You go to a poor quality museum of average films, watch a...More

Quick peek behind the scenes for any movie or television fan. You can see some current game show set-ups and also get a snapshot of the past.

This was fun but it's not mandatory. If you are close by then definitely stop in. I thought Warner Brothers and Universal Studios were a bit more interesting.
