Curiosity boxes on Navy Pier to promote ‘Carnival Row’
(Published Aug. 16, 2018)
Amazon promoters will install curiosity boxes along the the Polk Bros. Park promenade on Navy Pier to promote the Prime Original series “Carnival Row.”
The show, starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne, will premiere Aug. 31. Polk Bros. Park is at 600 Grand Ave.
The experience is free and will be live Aug. 31 through Sept. 2, coinciding with the show’s debut.
The large curiosity boxes will introduce pedestrians to some of the show’s mythical creatures. Centaurs, faeries and more will be on display as guests interact with the surprises each box has in store. In addition to plenty of photo moments and show-themed gifts will also be available for visitors after exploring the pop-ups.
Set in a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological immigrant creatures, “Carnival Row” explores how this growing population struggles to coexist with humans — forbidden to live, love, or fly with freedom. But even in darkness, hope lives, as a human detective, Rycroft Philostrate (Orlando Bloom), and a refugee faerie named Vignette Stonemoss (Cara Delevingne) rekindle a dangerous affair despite an increasingly intolerant society.
