The final installment of free Moonlight Movies, featuring Star Wars—The Force Awakens was held at Canan Commons on Saturday night.
Thanks to the Ball State IDIA program, guests were able to experience Star Wars in a whole new way! Using agumented reality, similar to Pokemon Go!, attendees were able to download an app to their smartphones to enable a multi-dimensional experience. Sight and Sound provided a stunning display of light and sound before and during the film.
Favorite Star Wars characters were in attendance, and Dale Basham provided a stellar performance (pun intended, since it was a Star Wars movie) as emcee of the event.
Kids wore their own costumes, and prepared to do battle and formed alliances on a special interactive sculpture. (See the pictures below.)
