Owner description: Lights of Liberty brings history to life through technology with two dazzling experiences. Liberty 360 in the PECO Theater is the newest show, a 3D journey through the iconic American symbols. This striking presentation, hosted by Ben Franklin, takes place in a 360-degree theater that surrounds the audience. Liberty 360 in the PECO Theater runs every 20 minutes and is located in the Historic Philadelphia Center at 6th & Chestnut Streets - just across from the Liberty Bell.The Lights of Liberty outdoor sound and light show tells the story of the American Revolution as it happened, where it happened. This heartwarming experience was born in 1999 and as such, the technology had become outdated. Currently, Historic Philadelphia, Inc., the parent, non-profit organization of Lights of Liberty, is re-imagining the Lights of Liberty outdoor sound and light show. Historic Philadelphia, Inc. is working with some of the best theatrical and technology teams in the country to dream up an impressive way to tell the birth of our nation. Coming soon - the NEW Lights of Liberty show! Visit our website for the most up-to-date information.

I read this review after I wasted $18 to see this show. Like reviewer " mcChamber76 " said " save your money" . The 3-D was not working and they took $ 5 dollar off. The only good about this place is the air conditioner was nice and cool, it give my family a break from the heat on 06/29/13.

I thought the show was great the sights and sounds were good and the effects were great. Something you have to see to appreciate.

I thought this would be a great movie on Liberty and Independence and the forming of our nation. Honestly, it was a bit disappointing. I would have rather seen the visitor center movie, but it was not showing and this was a decent alternative. The cool thing about it was that you were in it at the end. I dislike 3D movies and so that was a drawback, but it was interesting enough. Over priced for the length and quality. Shop the store but the movie is not the highlight.

It's advertised as a 360 degree experience but really isn't, also the 3d " effects " are not good and really add nothing to this clunky story. It's a 15 minute movie that is 14 minutes too long. There are too many great historical options in Philly and the surrounding area to waste time here.

The 3-d is dated. The acting and content is trite.
