On Saturday, Nov. 30, Phoenix’s Steele Indian School Park hosted the “The Fair of the Aeronauts,” an extravagant recreation of the World Fair that launches Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne to fame in 1862 in Amazon Prime Video’s new film The Aeronauts. The event included what was billed as the world’s first movie screening on a hot-air balloon, a functional replica of the “Mammoth” balloon, refreshments and entertainment from a legion of 19th-century performers.
The Aeronauts debuts in theaters Dec. 6 and on Amazon Prime Video Dec. 20. Watch the trailer:
