Posted November 1, 2005 7:55 am by Tirian
The Irish film premiere of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is to be held in Belfast, the city of its author CS Lewis’ birth. The December premiere will be the final fundraising event in Queen’s University’s £44m library campaign.
Queen’s is paying tribute to Lewis by designing a special reading room in his honour in the tower of the new library.
The filmmakers have provided the design of the wardrobe doors featured in the film for the CS Lewis Reading Room.
The building was recently granted planning permission.
Key filmmakers, some cast members and senior Disney and Walden Media executives will attend the premiere in Belfast and a gala dinner later that night in the Great Hall at Queen’s.
