Austin,Texas (June 29, 2023) – EVO Entertainment Group (EVO), the nation's leading and largest operator of cinema entertainment centers, is celebrating the new Barbie movie with a blowout multi-day event, Destination: Barbie Land. Taking place at EVO’s Southlake location July 19 to July 23, the event is free and open to the public and will fully immerse guests in the fantastically fun magic that captures the essence of Barbie’s glamour and individuality. Guests are welcome to walk the pink carpet and be transported to some of the most iconic Barbie dreamscapes, filled with the same wonder and glitz one would expect out of a Barbie Dreamhouse.
EVO cordially invites guests to embrace their inner main characters during Barbie's opening weekend. Get ready to dazzle in your Barbie best and indulge in the transformative world of fashion at the enchanting Barbie Glam Boutique. This includes a glam station, a larger-than-life photo installation, and more. Guests can also head over to the Barbie Beach Club, a vibrant beach oasis adorned with palm trees, light-up chairs, and photo-op installations, or transport themselves to the glamorous era of disco by stepping into the dazzling Barbie Disco Dance Floor where shimmering lights, groovy beats, and a pulsating dance floor await.
Destination: Barbie Land is the first-of-its-kind movie experience offered by the entertainment and hospitality power house known for experiential entertainment destinations that offer a broad slate of activities for its guests. Built in partnership with Art Seen Alliance, Destination: Barbie Land promises to be a pink experiential paradise.
“One of the most iconic American brands is headed to the big screen this summer and the excitement for the film is palpable. As we approach what is poised to be one of the largest pop-culture moments and biggest movies of the year, we wanted to create a truly unique way for fans to get in on the fun,” said Marissa Blomstrom, Chief Marketing Officer at EVO Entertainment. “Everything we do at EVO is about offering guests a top-notch entertainment experience, and our Barbie experience is no exception.
