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."

"I am very happy that Propagart has the opportunity to present this amazing exhibition, which will without a doubt thrill children and their whole families. Both blockbuster movies have stimulated the imagination of each and every one of us. And now, this interactive exhibition will most definitely add to the whole experience by transporting them into the wonder and magical world of Narnia," added Serge Grimaux.

Visitors to the exhibition will view artifacts from C.S. Lewis' personal study and experience exciting environments such as the famous attic and wardrobe. Once inside Narnia, visitors will encounter frozen waterfalls, authentic props and costumes used in the filming of Narnia, and other interactive and instructive elements including:

    
    - The White Witch's Throne Interactive: A replica of the White Witch's
      Throne where visitors can sit on the icy throne and feel the chill. A
      nearby display describes the impact of climate change on our planet and
      investigates whether our planet could be frozen for 100 years, like the
      world of Narnia.

    - Build a Castle Archway: An area where visitors have the opportunity to
      build an arch, while learning about the architectural structure and
      strategy involved in the design.
