The ‘Dawn Treader’ USA Special Premiere will be in Lexington, KY

Posted December 7, 2010 10:39 am by fantasia_kitty

From Lex18.com:

Christian Academy of Louisville won The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader / Operation Narnia Hometown Premiere Challenge and will host a special premiere event and screening of the film in Lexington featuring two of the film’s stars.

Georgie Henley and Skandar Keynes will attend the event, which will take place at the Regal Hamburg Pavilion 16 Cinemas on Dec. 9.

Among the competing organizations and groups, Christian Academy created the most shoebox-sized gift boxes for needy.

According to the Operation Narnia website, the Christian Academy of Louisville will receive 1,000 tickets to give out to whomever they choose. Congratulations on winning the Operation Narnia contest!

UPDATE: By the way, the reason the premiere is being held 90 minutes away from the winning city is because the contest rules stated that the premiere had to be at a Regal Cinema theater. The Regal Hamburg Pavilion 16 Cinemas in Lexington were the closest Regal theater to Louisville.

    I wonder why the Christian Academy of LOUISVILLE that won the contest (and which, according to their website, is actually located in Louisville) is having the premier in LEXINGTON? Louisville and Lexington are two different cities that are about 90 minutes apart, and Louisville is the bigger city (so it’s not like they don’t have any movie theaters there.) I wonder why all those kids have to drive 90 minutes to another city instead of the city where they live and go to school?

    • fantasia_kitty says:

      Because the contest rules stated that it had to be held at a Regal Cinema theater and that was probably the closest one. I don’t know that for sure, but that’s what I suspect.

      • fantasia_kitty says:

        Yep, I just confirmed that. The closest Regal Cinema location to Louisville is in Lexington. That’s why it’s there.

  • Duffleglum says:

  • QueenSusanJ316 says:

    How many boxes did they do?

    • CAL Staff says:

      The students collected almost 1800 boxes of toys and special items for Operation Christmas Child. They deserved the premier. It was a great time and Skandar and Georgie were very gracious and great to talk to.

  • Narniafan says:

  • lucas says:

    Yeah, I was there, and it was great, only one problem, I was working behind the counter, not out in the crowd getting to talk to them. I did make a sprite for Georgie Henley. So that’s cool.

  • ProfB says:

    Just saw the hometown premiere in Lexington! Georgie and Skandar walked into the theater a little after 5. They were incredibly gracious and friendly with interviews, photos, and autographs. Later, they did a nice introduction to the movie for two screens. Great crowd from Christian Academy to see a great family film. Movie is visually outstanding. Found myself often wanting to freeze frame scenes just to take it all in. By far…this is my favorite ending of the three. You’ll see why…
