    I was wondering if these are still available? I remember getting in one back in 1989 and getting a virtual haircut. It was so cool since I was only 8. I want my girls to experience it next time we are at Hollywood Studios. I'm really hoping they are still open...

    The sound booths used binaural "3D" sound to take you through a short fiction where you were a new executive at the studio and had to get ready for a meeting with "the big cheese." One of the tasks was to get a quick haircut at your desk. It was a very effective illusion.

    I haven't been in that building in a long time. Last I saw the booths were still there just closed. Have they since been removed?

    I also remember booths were you could loop in dialogue to movie scenes, the one sticking out in my mind being one from TRON.
