Chicago bites back with ‘The Meg’

July 28, 2018

Chicago bites back this weekend with a virtual reality (VR) experience Saturday, July 28 and Sunday, July 29 during the Taste of Lincoln Ave. located between Fullerton and Wrightwood, in anticipation of the new film “The Meg” starring Jason Statham and Rainn Wilson and opening in theaters August 10.

A customized and branded truck will open its doors to entice participants to experience a “semi-underwater” VR chase scene, “attacks and underwater peril.” Of course, photo opportunities will be available to capture your authentic reactions to this “prehistoric 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon.”

Be a part of “The Meg” and get ready for the shark that just might have eaten “Jaws!” Doors (and mouths) open at 12 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis. This event is FREE, and included in the suggested $10 donation to attend the festival.
