| Unmissable stuff for movie buffs!
I almost passed on the rather innocuous sounding CinéMagique at Disneyland Paris in favour of another ride on the exhilarating Twilight Zone Tower of Terror; I'm glad that I didn't, because this ingenious, 'interactive' trip through the history of cinema is also tremendous fun (albeit less likely to give you a heart attack!).

At the end of a short pre-movie introduction, a Disneyland crew member reminds members of the audience to switch off their mobile phones during the performance, but despite this timely reminder, a loud ring tone can be heard only a few minutes into the film, the inconsiderate owner of the phone answering the call and proceeding to hold a loud conversation about his lost luggage. He gets his comeuppance, however, when the on-screen actors become annoyed at his behaviour and magically whisk him into their cinematic realm.

Having broken the 'fourth wall', the man (now played by Martin Short) wanders perilously through a variety of cinema classics, pursued by a beautiful silent-movie actress (Julie Delpy) who has fallen in love with him (only in a movie!), resulting in much hilarity.

While razor-sharp editing and fancy visual special effects ensure the seamless integration of Martin Short's character into the great selection of timeless movie moments, the specially equipped theatre throws a few additional surprises at the audience to ensure maximum enjoyment.
