Now Playing at Sci-Port: "Tornado Alley" IMAX Film

Karen Wissing of Sci-Port: Louisiana's Science Center happily reports that the new IMAX film "Tornado Alley," which opened at Sci-Port on Saturday and plays through September 30, is attracting sell-out crowds to the science center's IMAX Dome theater. The film shows unprecedented footage from inside a violent tornado, footage which was captured by The Discovery Channel's "Stormchasers" team, led by Sean Casey.

Wissing went on to say that Sean Casey himself will be in attendance - along with his bizarre and, honestly, totally bitchin' Tornado Intercept Vehicle (see the Wikipedia page, it's worth the click) at screenings and events on August 9-10. The Sci-Port engagement of "Tornado Alley" is made possible by a sponsorship from KSLA Stormtracker 12.

Sci-Port expects to announce details of what all Casey will be doing in Shreveport-Bossier soon, but Wissing hinted at "a possible opportunity to win a ride through downtown Shreveport in the Tornado Intercept Vehicle."

If you, like me, are stoked about possibly cruising through downtown in this unbelievable Mad Max tank, join the Sci-Port Facebook page and keep your eyes peeled for news about the contest. Does it have flamethrowers? Could we add flamethrowers?
