“amazing video”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

When you are in downtown Philadelphia, be sure to include a visit to the Comcast Center Building, at 1776 Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The video wall is 83 feet long and 25 feet high. The video is not continuous, because of short breaks between different sections, but wait several seconds and you will be rewarded with more beautiful video. The several videos today, in May, were different from the videos seen after the Thanksgiving Day parade. This is free entertainment for people of all ages. Extended families love it.

“Christmas with the kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

This wasn't around when my kids were young, but my kids bring their kids and we all go for a visit every Christmas season. Afterwards we walk in SEPTA concourse to Macys Christmas light show. My kids always enjoyed the SEPTA tunnels, now my grandkids doo too

“Video Board Rocks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

worth seeing if not for the video board and the awesome food court as well as the cool shops. The Italian suit shop has amazing
custom suits and stuff . The Euro is awful so a suit is $3500 and up but quality rocks. And did I mention Dibruno

“Now this is what I call a Big Screen TV!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

The lobby of the Comcast building is a wonderful place for the entire family. To see a huge wall transformed into amazing videos, some huge, some small, is wonderful. People appear to walk along the wall, or stand on top of hallways. Free, fun, and fanciful. What more could you ask!

“Free, indoors, and a good change of pace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

The video wall in the lobby of the Comcast building is a free spectacle conveniently located near other major tourist destinations. One entire wall of the lobby transforms into an enormous video experience, well worth seeing, especially around Christmas. You sit or stand indoors, out of the weather, and can relax, eat a snack that you bring, and let your young children blow off a little energy while you regain some. There are some interesting sculptures in the lobby, too. And as I said: "free".
