Road to Bushy Run

The Bushy Run Battlefield grounds and museum elucidate the context and effects of one of the major British and Native American battles during Pontiac's War (1763-1764). Using archival and newly-shot re-enactment footage, The Magic Lantern created "The Road to Bushy Run," designed the theater in which it plays to imitate the look of the battlefield and programmed and installed features like vibrating seats, scene-specific smells dispersed by scent cannons and a motion sensor that starts the film when visitors enter the theater.
