    It would make a great presentation space for buyouts...Just get a screen and projector

    Pretty sure they’re attached to the area lights and they go on when it gets dark. It was probably overcast from storm clouds. No big deal.

    Makes sense. I was thinking more about a security guard poking her head in on a round, easier to do quickly if it's lit.

    The lights were on the ceiling rigging and one of the towers. Pictures are poor. Im headed that way and will check again. Maybe HHN rehersals? Or are all those done in the SSs?

    Soooooo... anything coming in here? With the pace of Bourne I presume not, but I hope to be wrong.

    They had no plans for this theater when they closed it. It just wasn’t worth spending the money to run a show no one was watching.

    It's bad show for sure but all focus is on Epic Worlds. Mike Aiello moved there and I bet there is a ton of work to do there. See this thing as a future expansion plot.

    I just keep thinking they're not going to touch Lost Continent until they bring in Zelda, assuming Nintendo is a hit.

    They're not going to replace a land until after Epic Universe opens, correct

    A lot of these people moved over to Bourne too.

    I wonder if they’d start demolition a few months before it opened so it could open sooner after EU opened.

    The middle ground between light and shadow...
    It's a horrible waste of space to continue to let this venue sit vacant (shades of Stitch at Magic Kingdom), but honestly... USF needs more attention at this point, anyway.

    Not that it sounds like that's happening any time soon, either, though.

    I think the biggest issue with USF is that Super Nintendo World was supposed to either be open by now, or opening like next year. Adding SNW solves a lot of USF major issues. Moving this to the new park set USF back a couple of years.

    But I agree, poor waste of space. I’ve been going to Universal for almost 10 years now and I just honestly have never seen anything in the Toon Lagoon Theatre.
