Barrel Organ to Promote The Phantom Menace in 3-D

How do you get people to come to a movie that was originally released in the late 90s to poor reviews and expect people to watch it again more than a decade later simply because it is in 3D? Promote it with a LEGO Star Wars Barrel Organ of course! Currently touring around German theaters, the barrel organ features scenes built out of LEGO from Hoth, Tatooine, Endor and the Death Star. The scenes are built onto the barrel in such a way that it matches the musical composition of the Star Wars Main Theme. When the organ is rotated, mechanical sensors come into contact with bricks, which in turn strike the keys on a keyboard, thus, allowing for the music to be played.
