The Omni Lights Get Hijacked On Wednesday: Here's Six Great Spots To Watch The Show

You've waited a month for "Expanded Cinema," the Omni light hijacking project happening this Wednesday night, September 26. Fourteen Dallas video artists will replace the flashy building's normal visual programming with their own mad scientist inventions, starting at 8 p.m. You should see the show in the best available location. Here's a few things to consider when selecting your perfect vantage point.

With the entire wrap-around exterior of the building being used simultaneously, you'll want to see as much of it as possible. That means putting distance between it and you. For a great view, you'll need to cross the river. Also, this show has a musical component. On Wednesday night you'll get the experiment in its entirety, with each artist's custom soundtrack playing live on KXT 91.7. That means you'll need a radio with speakers and solid reception.

Hey, don't furrow that brow. Here's a guide to conquering this thing.
