Your favourite Disney fairytale has come to life!

To celebrate the premiere of Alice Through the Looking Glass 3D, IMAX Theatre collaborated with US street artist Kelsey Montague to create a unique, Alice-themed artwork outside the theatre.

The mural took Kelsey around 13 hours to paint over two freezing cold Melbourne days.

A time-lapse video was taken of the artist at work and shows the painting come to life from start to finish.

 

Kelsey Montague is the artist of #Whatliftsyou, stunning and interactive murals which have been featured in the New York Times and have become famous across social media.

The enormous painting, which was inspired by the new film, is located at the front entrance of the building.

Today! This is so exciting. #disneyaliceinimax #whatliftsyou

And the mural isn’t just for show! IMAX will give a year’s supply of IMAX Melbourne movie tickets to one lucky Melburnian. Snap a picture with the mural, post it to social media and use #DisneyAliceInIMAX.

A packed theatre watched the premiere of the long-awaited sequel to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland on Thursday.

Alice Through the Looking Glass features the beloved characters from Lewis Carroll’s well-known stories. Alice (Mia Wasikowska) travels back in time to the whimsical world of Wonderland to save the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp).
