The U23D movie will run twice for the reception! The first show will start at 6:30pm and the second will start at 8pm. Visitors are welcome to come and go as the please.

U2 3D (2008, 85 minutes, MPAA Rating: G) will be shown at 6:30pm  and 8pm.  
The first-ever live-action digital 3-D film, U2 3D is a unique cinematic experience that places viewers within the pulsing energy of a stadium concert given by the world’s most popular band. Marrying innovative digital 3-D imagery and multi-channel surround sound with the excitement of a live U2 concert – shot in South America during the final leg of their “Vertigo” tour – it creates an immersive theatrical experience unlike any 3-D or concert film that has come before. Ushering in a new dimension of filmmaking, U2 3D takes viewers on an extraordinary journey they will never forget. Showing at 8pm, limited seating available (175 spots).

An admission ticket for this reception is required and is included in full registration packages. Extra tickets for guests can be purchased online or at the Conference Registration Desk.

The hall is 10 minutes walking distance from the Conference Hotel. Due to the inclement weather there will also be a shuttle running between the Conference Hotel Lobby and the venue running from 6:15-9:30.
