Dawn Treader to Get Two Premieres in the US — First in Knoxville, TN
Yesterday we reported that the US premiere for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader would take place on December 9th in whichever city the Operation Narnia contest winner chose. As it turns out, apparently there will be two US premieres. The first one will take place in Knoxville, TN on December 8th.
From WBIR News:
Stars from the film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader will be attending a movie premiere in Knoxville to benefit Variety, the Children’s Charity.
According to a release, the movie will be shown on Wednesday, December 8 at the Regal Cinema’s Pinnacle Stadium 18 in Turkey Creek.
Tickets will begin to go on sale on Tuesday November 23 at the Pinnacle Box Office. Each ticket is $50 and includes a catered reception before the stars walk the red carpet and a viewing of the film in 3D.

Thanks Narnianerd for the heads up!
UPDATE: I noticed there was a lot of confusion in the comments below, so I thought I’d try to clarify a bit. No winner for the Operation Narnia contest has been announced. This is a completely different premiere.
December 8 US Premiere – Knoxville TN hosted by Variety, the Children’s Charity.
December 9 US Premiere – Unknown location at this time. Will be hosted by the winner of the Operation Narnia contest.
December 10 – The movie opens everywhere in the US.
UPDATE Nov. 13, 2010: We have more information on the Knoxville, TN screening. Apparently rather than a premiere, it’s been called a pre-release red carpet Gala. But the real bit of news since several of you asked, tickets for the event go on sale on Nov 23, 2010 at the theater.
