Most Philadelphians are familiar with the epic 83-foot LED screen in the lobby of the Comcast Center. And now, for the 6th year, the display is home to the Comcast Holiday Spectacular, a 15 minute multimedia production open to the public.
“For those of us who grew up in this town, going to the Wannamaker Light Show, this is like the next generation,” says Karen Buchholz of Comcast Corporation.
It truly is an awe-inspiring, immersing experience – just ask any of the nearly 1 million people who have seen the show since it began. The largest four-millimeter screen in the world illuminates the various locations within the show – from a sleigh ride through the snow to a pod of penguins skating the ice with children – and beyond.
One of the new featured clips is a rendering of colonial Philadelphia with members of the Walnut Street Theater singing “Auld Lang Syne.” We got the chance to speak to two of the performers who were excited to see themselves on the big screen. Take a look!
And come one, come all to the Holiday Spectacular, playing on the hour every day at the Comcast Center through New Year’s Day!
