Motion Odyssey Movie; M.O.M.
Jordan’s Furniture, 100 Stockwell Dr. Avon; (508) 580-4900
More like a Disney ride than a movie, M.O.M has a four-story screen, 48 multi-directional chairs, and an action-packed movie with you as part of the adventure. Crazier still, M.O.M. is found in a discount furniture store!
Jordan’s has always been known for its offbeat salesmanship. The idea is: If you give people enough good reasons, they’ll come in to buy furniture from anywhere.” And this ride is a good reason at least, to come in. The seats move in eight computer-controlled directions, so that you really feel the motion seen in the film. What are the morally uplifting subjects of such a cinematic experience? Dune buggies, roller coasters,elevators, and other thrillsn chills the usual.
Admission is $4, and $3 for children under 13. Not that this is intended as a moneymaker; all profits are donated to a different charity each month, from the Red Cross to the AIDS Action Committee. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.M. (Saturdays from 10 A M.), and Sundays from 12-5 RM
