This lava lamp has two bases connected by a pyrex/plastic tube. Could be scalable to larger size for a giant archway for a concert, etc. See illustration.

       You probably need some air space at the top to allow for expansion, but croissant. Especially for the giant concert version.

       I wonder if the lava would find its way to the other side, or just fall back. Suppose it would have some momentum towards the other side, since it's floating in that direction.   

       A huge version would be plastic. Glass is too fragile that big...

       Close the loop at the bottom, and light one side with LED, the other with incandescent. It will tend to produce a true circulation.
