The Other Song from Flynn's Arcade

While snooping around the abandoned Flynn's Arcade, Sam is serenaded with a pair of über-cool synthesizer riffs. Fitting in with TRON: Legacy's futuristic feel, the jukebox is actually bumping some fresh jams from 1983.

In an earlier blog we identified Journey's Separate Ways (World's Apart), which plays when Sam Flynn turns the arcade's power on. The other song from Flynn's Arcade is Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) by the British duo, The Eurythmics. Played as Sam walks downstairs to find the secret office, the synthpop standard Marty McFlys the audience back to 1983.

Back in 1983, when MTV actually played music videos, Sweet Dreams received heavy airplay. Featuring Annie Lennox's dyed red hair and androgynous look, the Eurythmics appeared frequently in rotation with videos like Every Breath You Take by The Police, Michael Jackson's Billie JeanBeat It, Culture Club's Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?, Hungry Like the Wolf by Duran Duran and Pat Benetar's Love is a Battlefield.

New "elecTRONica" Party at Disney California Adventure

New Nighttime Party at Disney California Adventure Park Immerses Guests in the Digital World of ‘TRON: Legacy’

ANAHEIM, Calif., September 24, 2010 – Fun-seeking families will join science fiction fans and party-goers of all ages to enter the colorful and exciting world of the upcoming Disney movie “TRON: Legacy” when “ElecTRONica,” a new, nighttime party, premieres in Disney California Adventure park on Friday, Oct. 8. “TRON: Legacy” debuts in theaters Dec. 17. 

Combining dynamic music and dance, fun food and drink, and the computer-world environment of “TRON: Legacy,” the “ElecTRONica” festivities will take place Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights this fall, plus all week Thanksgiving week, Nov. 19 -28, and nightly during the Christmas vacation period  Friday, Dec. 17, through Sunday, Jan 2. “ElecTRONica” is expected to continue through mid-to-late April 2011. 

The adventure will begin in Sunshine Plaza at a “TRON”-themed stage where, at 6 p.m., an exciting music, video and dance show will welcome guests and prepare them to enter the world of TRON. 

When the high-powered Sun Plaza welcoming show has concluded, the party will transition into Hollywood Pictures Backlot. Guests will pass through an “ElecTRONica” archway to a street alive with a computerized color grid. There, they will have the sensation of being digitized and transported into the computer mainframe world of “TRON: Legacy.” Among the highlights:

  • Buildings in Hollywood Pictures Backlot will be mapped with “TRON: Legacy” images. Light cycles will zoom across the building facades, while other dynamic images from the film fill the street. 
  • Before entering the studio area, guests will pass under the iconic Recognizer, the vigilant sentry on the lookout for unclassified “Programs” in the digital world of “TRON: Legacy.” With smoke and lights emanating from it, this ever-watchful vehicle seems to hover above the ground as it scans those who pass below. 
  • At the center of the party is a DJ platform, complete with a laser beam beckoning guests of all ages to the fun. Here, professional DJs will keep the energy going with electronic party music while dancers costumed as “Sirens" and “Programs” from the movie rock out at locations throughout the party. 
  • Also appearing on the Backlot Stage adjoining the dance floor will be Laserman, a performer who does amazing tricks to music with impressive lasers and light. 
  • Near the dance floor, guests will find a re-creation of Flynn’s Video Arcade, a key location in the adventure of “TRON: Legacy.” At Flynn’s, gamers will shoot for the highest scores as they enjoy classic 1980s arcade games. Outside the Arcade, guests will be able to play the unreleased “TRON: Evolution” video games for popular home consoles, and take part in a nightly tournament. The new video games, which feature the iconic light cycles and light discs in stories that bridge the gap between the two TRON films, will be released on December 7. 
  • Guests will get an extended glimpse of the upcoming film at “TRON: Legacy, Exclusive 3D Sneak Peek” (presented in the venue which, by day, houses Muppet*Vision 3D). The 3D preview has special effects exclusive to this theater.
  • Guests will be able to purchase food from a specially-themed food truck, along with  glowing alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages at the End of Line Club, inspired by an iconic new location in the world of  “TRON: Legacy.”
