NORWALK, Conn. -- "The Polar Express" is making a stop in Norwalk.
The Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk is selling tickets for an IMAX presentation of "The Polar Express" during the holiday season. The film will run at the aquarium on weekends from Friday, Nov. 28 to Jan. 1.
“We know there are families – and school groups on field trips – who have made it a tradition to see ‘The Polar Express’ in IMAX here each year,” said Chris Loynd, the Aquarium’s marketing director, in a release. “We’re happy to offer it again and hope that more folks make it a special part of their Christmas season.”
Loynd said the six-story IMAX screen is the largest in Connecticut.
“IMAX’s motto is ‘IMAX is Believing,’ which is why IMAX is the perfect format for a film that’s about believing,” Loynd said in the release.
Private weekday shows of “The Polar Express” are available for preschool and elementary-school students. Loynd said the shows are "quite attractive to teachers who want to treat their students to a special Christmas field trip," according to the release.
“More than 1,400 students already are booked for these shows, which many schools decide are BYOB – bring your own blankey,” Loynd said in the release. “Some of the classes even come wearing their pajamas.”
Tickets for “The Polar Express” are priced at $11.50 for adults and $9.50 for children ages 2-12. For more details and to reserve tickets, residents are asked to visit The Maritime Aquarium website or call (203) 852-0700, ext. 2206.
