Posted May 12, 2010 5:08 pm by fantasia_kitty

After Narnia: The Exhibition wrapped up Houston a few weeks ago, we weren’t sure where it would be going between now and Oct. 9, 2010 when it arrives in Huntsville, AL. Today, we learn that it’s headed to Montreal, QC, Canada.

MONTREAL, May 12 /CNW Telbec/ – The Chronicles of Narnia: The Exhibition will be presented at the Montreal Exhibition Centre from June 3rd to August 29th. Montreal will become the sixth city to host the exhibition alongside cities such as Philadelphia, Houston, Phoenix and Kansas City. The Montreal Exhibition Centre is located in the heart of downtown of the 5th floor of the Eaton Centre Montreal.

Global Experience Specialists, Inc. (GES) produced the exhibition in partnership with Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media. Based on the blockbuster film series and C.S. Lewis’ beloved fictional books, the state-of-the-art entertainment and educational experience offers visitors the opportunity to tour scenes from the famed literary world of Narnia. Through authentic costumes, props and set dressings from the magical Narnia films, visitors will enter a three dimensional world that combines the wonders of science with aspects of fantasy. The Montreal stop is presented by Serge Grimaux.

“This exhibition is a truly captivating and entertaining experience for all ages,” said Eddie Newquist, EVP and Chief Creative Officer, GES. “From the scene displays and props seen in the Narnia films, to the scientific and educational aspects of the exhibition that stimulate the senses and the mind, guests will be transported into another world to experience Narnia like never before.”

“I am very happy that Propagart has the opportunity to present this amazing exhibition, which will without a doubt thrill children and their whole families. Both blockbuster movies have stimulated the imagination of each and every one of us. And now, this interactive exhibition will most definitely add to the whole experience by transporting them into the wonder and magical world of Narnia,” added Serge Grimaux.

    Oh, my goodness! I can’t believe they have the Narnia exhibit there now! I used to visit Montreal a lot! We would probably go back if we hadn’t moved! I have got to tell my friends!

  • Scrubbers says:

    Good gravy. First the Habs eliminate Pittsburgh/Sid the kid and now this! It isn’t fair! Can’t wait until the exhibition makes its way to Toronto. They would be nuts not to have it go to the largest city in Canada.

  • narnian resident says:

    darn…i hate reading the beautiful description and details and never getting to enjoy it. i wanna see it so bad! why must i live where no one will go?

    • Starlily says:

      Same here! It would be so cool to go, but even though my family likes Narnia all right, we wouldn’t take a trip just to see the exhibition. *Sigh* Maybe someday…

  • HighQueenofNarnia says:

    I wish it would come to my area. 🙁 Oh well. I wonder… is it going anywhere after Alaska? Like, just before the movie comes out? Wait, that wouldn’t make any sense… if it goes there on Oct. 9, then it wouldn’t go anywhere else before Dec. 10. Haha, just wishful thinking. But I hope that there are pictures of it that NW can obtain. Tarva and Alambil, if you go, could you send a spy report? I’ll love you to death if you do!

  • Swanwhite says:

    Oh awesome! 😀 That’s not too far from where I live. I think we can make it.

  • silverPhoenix says:
