I just received a msg spreading the word about the "Tornado Alley" film screening coming up at the Ontario Science Center. Sounds very interesting!

I believe this is the film that film maker Sean Casey was making during the Discovery Channel's TV show "Storm Chasers".

The info is as follows:
----------------------------

Hello.

I work at the OMNIMAX Theatre at the Ontario Science Centre (Don Mills And Eglinton). I am trying to inform people in the Toronto area who are interested in storm chasing or meterology or natural disasters, that we are offering a free preview screening of the film, Tornado Alley, on Wednesday, March 23 at 7 p.m at our theatre. The screening is by invitation only. http://stagingservercanada.com/projects/osc/10741/tornado_alley/tornado_invite_screening.html
Not sure if you can access the site I have just listed, but if people are interested, please call our call centre 416-696-1000 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. today, or tomorrow. If you want to know about the film, please check out this website.

Oh it's playing until June? Goodo. I won some tickets to the Hockey Hall of Fame this past winter so maybe we'll hit up the science center as well. I wonder if they still have that block of uranium there that you can lift... (pretty damn dense material I tell yah!)

If you get the chance to go, DO IT!!! It's "only" about 50-ish minutes, but amazing footage....

I thought it was great to hear that Bill Paxton did the narration. I suppose Twister 2 might not happen after all ;-(

just got back from it and to be honest i was not that impressed, as a fan of storm chasers it felt more like a tribute to V2 (vortex 2) then anything even though Sean was not a part of V2 for the last 2 seasons of it but none the less the footage was great and a good 40 mins
