CINCINNATI–The stars of the popular OMNIMAX film, Tornado Alley, will be making their second trip to Cincinnati Museum Center this weekend, July 23 and 24. The film, recently extended to October 13, has drawn large crowds to Museum Center and now visitors will get an in-depth look at one of the vehicles that helped make the film possible and the man behind it all.

The TIV and Sean will be at Cincinnati Museum Center all day on Sunday, July 24 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. See Tornado Alley and hear Sean introduce all films that day, giving his inside perspective and enter to win the raffle for some great autographed Storm Chasers prizes.
