Living in Center City Philadelphia, I walk past the Comcast Center --- the tallest building in the city --- all the time. But I never go inside unless I am either going to the underground food court or it's holiday season. Taking my grown kids and out-of-town friends to the Comcast holiday show is a yearly tradition for us now.
The show is a 3-D video displayed on a gigantic wall in the Comcast Center's lobby. It is difficult to explain it, but mainly it is a 15-minute video of music and dance and special effects that make it look like the people in the videos are real people dancing on the wall. It is shown every day from right after Thanksgiving until right after New Year's Day, every hour on the hour, from about 9 a.m. or so until 8 p.m. And each year the show is more and more popular, with large crowds at every hour. The lobby floor is heated (I'll bet that a lot of people who stand through the show don't know that!), and so you can sit on the floor with the kiddies and watch. There are aerial scenes of the city, ballet sequences, cartoon characters, and dancing lights. There's really no way to explain how special it is...you just have to go and see for yourself.
The show is free and parts of it change yearly. The Comcast lobby is interesting in itself, with sculptures of people walking on beams overhead.
Go. You'll like it. I guarantee it.
