Last night, Amazon Prime Video took flight on their nationwide tour in Los Angeles, Calif. for The Aeronauts’ Incredible Journeyin celebration of their soon-to-be-released feature film starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, The Aeronauts.
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 Jones and 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.
