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.”
