Amazon went above and beyond to surprise invitees with an advance preview of The Aeronauts alongside a Victorian Carnival.
The Aeronauts event awed guests by blending the past’s indelible spirit of curiosity with the technology of the future, attendees flocked to The Rose Bowl for opportunity to look up and reclaim a sense of wonder as they turn their gaze to the skies once again with an immersive fan experience set in 1862. Guests were delighted by the world of wonders seen at this Victorian fair, such as “Mammoth” hot air balloon rides (as featured in the film), a truth-seeking fortune teller, awe-inspiring hypnosis shows, food, games, cartoonists, performers dressed in period attire strolling the grounds, and much more. The festivities were inspired by The Aeronauts’ main protagonists’ (Amelia and James – played by Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne) incredible ballooning journey. The highlight of the evening was a screening of The Aeronauts on the world’s first Fly-In Theatre: a breathtaking 20-foot LED screen wrapped 360 degrees around a second hot air balloon.
