Tickets to Controversial Blockbuster Exhibition Go on Sale Today

ATLANTA, Feb. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Premier Exhibitions, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: PXHB) today announced that, in association with Concert Productions International and Jam Exhibitions, it will bring its blockbuster exhibition featuring real human bodies to the city of Atlanta, Georgia — marking the first time any exhibition of this kind has come to the area. The controversial exhibition, which continues to shatter attendance records in other cities around the world, will open on Saturday, March 4th at the Atlanta Civic Center, which is located at 395 Piedmont Avenue. BODIES … The Exhibition will showcase 21 whole-body specimens and more than 250 organs and partial body specimens that will give visitors the opportunity to see their own bodies in a fascinating way they never have before.

Tickets for the popular exhibition will go on sale today and can be obtained by logging onto www.BodiesTickets.com or by calling 877-77-CLICK. BODIES … The Exhibition in both Tampa, Florida at the Museum of Science & Industry and in New York City at the South Street Seaport have already broken all attendance records for touring exhibitions. In light of this, organizers urge the public to purchase advance tickets to ensure admittance when the exhibition opens in March. The exhibition will be open 7 days a week, Monday – Wednesday 9am – 7pm and Thursday – Sunday 9am – 9pm.

The body doesn’t lie. BODIES … The Exhibition reveals the truth about the human body. It gives the public the opportunity to see ‘what lies beneath’ their own skin. The exhibition will allow the public inside a world that has been taboo for centuries — available only to the medical profession.

It offers an insider’s view of the systems that keep us alive and that carry out the activities that we take for granted every day. The exhibition also serves as a wake-up call reminding us that our own decisions directly affect our health and our lives and includes powerful side by side comparisons of a healthy lung and a black lung ravaged by smoking. The exhibition encourages healthy lifestyle choices. The exhibition will change the way people see themselves. It is designed to enlighten, empower, fascinate, and inspire.

Arnie Geller, President and CEO of Premier Exhibitions, Inc. remarked, “Presenting this blockbuster exhibition in Atlanta is especially important to us as Atlanta is our company’s world headquarters and we are anxious to share this extraordinary exhibition in our hometown.”

“We are thrilled to host such a groundbreaking and unique artistic display like BODIES … The Exhibition,” stated Ann Marie Moratakis, Director of the Atlanta Civic Center. “Its impact in other cities has been phenomenal and we anticipate that Georgia residents and tourists will provide that same level of success in Atlanta.”

The organizers of BODIES … The Exhibition have similar exhibitions currently open at the Museum of Science & Industry in Tampa, Florida and South Street Seaport Exhibition Centre in New York City where they have drawn record breaking crowds.
