During the study, researchers hooked 50 people with bio-metric sensors while a showing of the live-action version of “Aladdin.”

These sensors found that the audience had their heart rates increase between 40 and 80 percent during 45 minutes of the movie.

This heart rate increase counts as “light exercise.” Which is similar to taking a walk and even gardening.

Time to hit up the theater for some light exercise. Hah!
