“The Empire State Building plays a lead role in hundreds of films and television shows, and ‘Elf’ has become a celebrated classic,” said Jean-Yves Ghazi, president of the Empire State Building Observatory. “Now, our guests can walk in Buddy the Elf’s footsteps in a special holiday experience that brings his adventures to life at the very place where the movie was filmed.”
Celebrations for the milestone anniversary include:
- Holiday Cheer – In partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery, "Elf” will take over the Observatory with themed décor in the building’s Fifth Avenue Lobby and on its famed 86th Floor Observatory. The iconic Fifth Avenue Lobby windows will depict snowy scenes of Buddy the Elf and his friends as he travels from the North Pole to the “World’s Most Famous Building.” The “Elf”-themed shoppable window displays will be a visual feast for visitors through Jan. 1, and feature a range of “Elf”-inspired products that capture the magic and merriment of the film. Guests can also pose with a life-size version of Buddy the Elf in an “Elf”-themed photo corner on the building’s iconic 86th Floor Observatory as of Nov. 10.
- Anniversary Screenings – Fans can purchase a special ticket to view “Elf” at one of four screenings on the Observatory’s 80th Floor on Sunday, Dec. 3, 10, and 17. Tickets will include holiday-themed drinks and snacks, and full access to ESB’s second floor museum and 86th Floor Observatory. More information and tickets can be found here.
- Festive Pop-Up – On Nov. 7 from 2-5 p.m., Warner Bros. Discovery will host a pop-up cart at the Empire State Building on the 86th Floor Observatory for guests to receive complimentary treats inspired by the elves’ four food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup.
- Lights – At sunset, the Empire State Building’s world-famous tower lights will shine in Buddy the Elf’s signature colors — green and yellow — to celebrate the milestone anniversary on Nov. 7.
