Default Avatar The Exhibition at Liberty Science Center

Hello everyone! I'm Terri, an employee at Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, NJ. I was looking for ways to get ready for our showing of Avatar: The Exhibition (by the way if the files they sent ahead of it are anything to go by, it's AMAZING) when I happened upon a thread here talking about it.
Our page about the exhibition
See our page for the movie

It's always exciting to see dedicated fans so I went to my bosses to see if they'd be interested in having a meet-up here. I think this is better though.

There is an opportunity to see the exhibition February 9-15 before it opens to the public February 16. Just RSVP via email (gotsci@lsc.org) by February 6. Everyone on the list will get a special wristband after they pay for admission that will get them into the exhibition.

We were also hoping that we could get help from fans more knowledgeable than ourselves to get people excited about the exhibition. Maybe a small cosplay showcase or something along those lines. We're pretty open to suggestions.

By the way, we will be offering discount admission for Avatar cosplayers (keep it family-friendly, please).

If you're curious about how to get to our location, just visit out website: Liberty Science Center

Just post if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. I'd also be happy to hear any ideas you'd like to share.

I think it would be awesome if there was also a way to coordinate with the upcoming meet that's being planned that will be held in DC sometime in July as far as I know. Just wanted to throw that out there.

MGCJerry, the exhibit will have moved by then.

Despite being told outright no in the live chat on your website, I'm still hoping you'll be able to get Avatar in the LSC's IMAX theater.

I am going to attend this Exhibition sometime, just not sure when. I can't wait!

Kaltxì TerriB...

Welcome to Tree of Souls forum. That sounds like a great opportuntiy for Avatar Fans to meet.

I hope you don't mind, but I've posted your message on the LearnNa'vi and AvatarForums fan sites too. Hopefully that will spread the word for you. Below are the links:

LearnNa'vi:
Avatar The Exhibition at Liberty Science Center

AvatarForums:
Avatar The Exhibition at Liberty Science Center

I would love to go, but I'm kinda doubting it as I'm in the UK. I really hope it is a great success and brings some Avatar fans together.

By the way we had a meet up of Avatar Fans in Seattle last year. Check out this link to see what we got up to:
AvatarMeet.com

We are also planning to have another meet up in Washington DC at the end of July (25th-29th), which we are currently working on trying to make a reality.

Anyway all the best with the exhibition. Help make people 'See'.

For anyone who goes, it would be great if you could take any piccies or videos to share with the rest of the clans. Irayo.

Alan

We are still looking into scheduling possibilities for our 3D theater but I can't confirm anything at this point.

I'm glad to hear you're so interested in our IMAX theater, though. If you get the chance, I'd really recommend seeing anything in it - its massive size makes for an impressive view.

Thanks for the welcome and support!

You should see our blog for updates about the exhibition. We already have one post about the set up.

Update: We will be getting the movie for our 3D theater, not our IMAX. Still, I feel quite strongly that Avatar is at its best on the big screen. See the movie page for more info.

Oh, wow! That is txantsan ma TerriB. I see that the link say that Avatar will play daily at 5 pm. Is that for the duration of the exhibition or for a limited period?

Just wish I could come across the pond to meet up with my Avatar family to watch it again. It really is an amazing experience to watch it as a clan.

Just one other question... Do you know which version it is that will be playing ; the original, special edition or collectors edition?

Many thanks again.

Alan

No argument there. I have a 30 inch hdtv. Growing up I had a smaller television than that. I never thought of a 30 or 32 inch tv as "small" until I saw Avatar on blu-ray. Every couple of weeks since Avatar left theaters, I've been looking on Fandango to see if it's playing anywhere within 100 miles of my location. Excluding the special edition release, I only had one find ever. It was at the end of 2011 at the museum of the moving image. So you can bet I am going to try to visit the exhibit and see Avatar at least once a week.

Given that I will almost certainly get an annual membership, I will endeavor to check out some of them after the Avatar exhibit ends.

This is outstanding! I am SO going even if it's a 7 hour drive for me.

One question, is the movie gonna be available until May 19 like the exhibition?

Irayo, TerriB, for letting us know about this! Yay -- this is awesome news! And Irayo, too, for all the info you've given us here about the exhibit. I hope to be able to make it to the LSC to see it (and a showing of the movie).

Is there a particular day being organised for a meet up at the Exhibition? We could end up with Avatar fans turning up on different days and missing each other.

If there was a particular day all those thinking of going could meet that would be great, especially if Avatar 3D was showing that day too.

According to the Liberty Science Center's website, it will be shown, sadly, for one week only starting this Saturday.
