DENVER, CO (November 4, 2010) — The young stars of the holiday motion picture event The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader are set to kick off the holiday season in grand fashion by hosting a nationwide
16 city lighting ceremony via live satellite, for the groundbreaking, multi-sensory, new Ice Palaces created by Taubman Centers, featuring scenes from The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader ( www.narnia.com). The ceremony will illuminate Cherry Creek Shopping Center and other Taubman (NYSE: TCO) malls across the country simultaneously as families and fans everywhere gather together in celebration.
On Friday, November 12 at 5:00 p.m. the young stars from the movie, Georgie Henley (Lucy Pevensie) and Will Poulter (Eustace Clarence Scrubb) will give holiday revelers the first look at the Ice Palaces and their highly anticipated film streamed live from Beverly Center in Los Angeles. The event will be simulcast to 16 Taubman centers across the country, including Cherry Creek Shopping Center where children will wave LED wands to collectively illuminate the Ice Palaces. The celebration opens the free exhibit for all to experience, ushering in the holiday season and the arrival of Santa Claus.
The event at Cherry Creek Shopping Center will begin at 4:30 p.m. with a children’s DJ on hand playing holiday music, as well as milk and cookies for all the children in attendance.
The Ice Palace Offers a Memorable Narnia Experience for All Shoppers can experience the enchantment of the Ice Palace and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader at Cherry Creek Shopping Center from November 12 through December 24. The exhibit, inspired by the magic of winter, features a color changing, 30-foot Ice Palace, encircled with a series of majestic arches and smaller globes that appear to be carved from ice and will immerse visitors with magical vignettes from the land of Narnia (see attached photo). As they walk through falling snow inside the structure, guests will encounter life-like figures portraying scenes from the film and exclusive movie footage integrated in an exciting video show. The Ice Palace was designed and produced for Taubman by Global Experience Specialists (GES). The all-audience 3D movie unfolds on the high seas and on magical islands, as Lucy and her brother Edmond, along with their cousin Eustace embark on an incredible adventure aboard the ship the Dawn Treader. The movie opens nationwide on December 10.
When visitors enter the Ice Palace’s largest dome they are greeted with falling snow and a captivating light show. The journey continues as guests can sit on the Ice Palace throne that’s cool to the touch, and leave their handprint behind on the interactive ice arch, which features the paw prints of famed Narnian creatures.
Following the live simulcast Santa will also arrive in the shopping center and families will be able to have their photo taken with him. Photos with Santa will be available in the shopping center from November 12 through the holiday season during all mall hours.
