The 1964-1965 New York World's Fair

Billy Graham

The well-known evangelist's religious message is presented by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association in a color film and a variety of exhibits. Personal counseling is offered to all who desire it. An octagonal building houses a 400-seat theater, several counseling rooms and galleries, and is enclosed by a garden. Near the building is a 100-foot-high tower which is topped by a brilliant sunburst.

Billy Graham exterior

The Billy Graham Pavilion was an attractive albeit low-key building, offering an oasis of tranquility amidst the bustle of the Fair. (CD #18 Set 94 #7)

Billy Graham with book

"Man in the Fifth Dimension". This 28-minute color movie, shown on a 50-foot, "wrap-around" screen which provides a feeling of audience participation, is presented in the theater once an hour. The movie, recounting the story of mankind from the beginning of time, gives pictorial dimensions to Billy Graham's Biblical philosophy. There are simultaneous translations of his narration into French, German, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese and Russian. For those who accept the invitation to receive Christ, given by Dr. Graham in the film, a trained staff offers guidance and counseling, also in several languages.

Rev. Billy Graham is seen in a publicity still from the pavilion's film, "Man in the Fifth Dimension". (CD #30 #W-1)

Billy Graham interior

An International Ministry. In the surrounding garden and exhibit galleries, photographic displays show the international scope of Billy Graham's ministry. In the entrance gallery, there is a transparent, multi-colored globe, six feet in diameter, which has been marked to show the places to which the minister has carried his worldwide Crusades for Christ. (CD #30 #W-3)
