Tonight, Queen Elizabeth Hall on the Southbank will be transformed into a world of Tron in anticipation of the film's release next month.
(If we don't sound excited, we really are, we're just aware we've talked about it an awful lot).
Featuring an impressive architectural light show, the event will also play host to a replica of the iconic Tron light bike, situated on the bottom floor of the Hall in "Flynn’s Arcade". The Hall will appear to be morphing before your very eyes (if you’ve not seen an architectural light display before, take a look at what Ralph Lauren did at their Bond Street store a few weeks back here).
Add in a Daft Punk soundtrack and a one and a half mile high blue light beam shooting upwards from the Hall into the night sky (air traffic control are apparently aware) and you have what promises to be one pretty spectacular event.
All this is thanks to the creative minds at Hewlett Packard, who are partnering with Disney, and will be demonstrating its unique ePrint technology throughout the day.
Alongside all the print-based excitement, HP is also offering one reader the chance to jet off to Tokyo to take in some amazing computer games and see the world of the future. The prize includes flights, hotel accommodation in one of the city’s finest haunts, access to all attractions at DisneyLand Tokyo and spending money – we'll be revealing more in the coming weeks, so watch this space for more.
Keep your eyes peeled next week for a video of the Tron spectacular before heading down there yourself (it’s on from 1pm – 9pm daily until December 2 - the light show begins 4pm daily). For more details visit www.disney.co.uk/tron/hp
