Coming to the big screen at Fortress Melbourne this month as part of the Fortress’ Gaming Film Festival is the movie that helped start the CGI revolution and now a cult classic to gamers and movie buffs alike, the original Tron!

Tron was a groundbreaking film for its time and has gone on to inspire many others. Individuals like John Lasseter, head of Pixar and Disney’s animation group, who said that “without Tron, there would be no Toy Story” (credit: What Will Tron: Legacy’s 3D VFX Look Like in 30 Years?- Anne Thompson, Dec 9, 2010). Tron has gone on to inspire games, toys, music, sequels and television shows and now a new generation can experience it for free, thanks to Fortress Melbourne.
