Millions of Americans have become fans of the Harry Potter books and movies. Still others will see just about any science fiction movie playing. There is a little part of each fan that would like to step behind the screen and be part of the action, if only for a few minutes.

Whether you are a sci fi fanatic, or just like to people watch, these venues can provide road warriors some much needed weekend entertainment while on an extended business trip.
