American Airlines and Universal Team For First In-Flight Film Festival
If you’re one of the many people who’s flying back and forth between Los Angeles to New York on American Airlines, you’re in for one amazing treat. In celebration of Universal Pictures’ 100 years of delivering top quality cinema to the masses, they’re showing off some of their greatest work on the first ever in-flight film festival.
What will they be showing up in the friendly skies today? They’ll be screening none other than ‘Field of Dreams’ and ‘Seabiscuit.’ Sadly ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’ didn’t make the list, drat. But that’s not the only treat that passengers will be receiving. Along with their surprise in-flight entertainment, CNN Traveler reports that they’ll be receiving free headphones, a coupon for fifteen minutes of free Wifi and some movie candy. Hope they have some Crunch bites in there.
The original idea came from Universal and graduate students at the University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. This is a great way for Universal to remind everyone what kind of wonderful cinematic accomplishments they’ve made in the last century, but ‘Field of Dreams’ and ‘Seabiscuit’ is just the beginning of their gigantic library of work. Since this is their 100th year in the business, here’s hoping that they really go all out in October and show off some of their most beloved movie monsters which includes ‘The Mummy,’ ‘Frankenstein,’ ‘Dracula,’ ‘The Invisible Man’ and many others.
