If you live near a Taubman Mall  (for those in Hampton Roads, McArthur Mall), they are gearing up for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader  in a big way. (If you aren’t familiar with the Chronicles of Narnia films, you should check them out!)
On Friday, November 12th they have an evening of events planned 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 MacArthur Center and other Taubman malls across the country simultaneously as families and fans everywhere gather together in celebration.
At 7:00 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, 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.
MacArthur Center will also be giving away five $100 gift cards during the event. Stop by Customer Service between 5:00 and 7:00 p.m. on November 12th to enter.
Shoppers can experience the enchantment of the Ice Palace and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader at the malls 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. 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.
If you are looking for plans next Friday night, see if there is a mall near you featuring the event. You could win a $100 gift card!
