The re-energized focus on Long Island Sound's story is obvious in the colorfully redesigned main hall, which has been renamed Newman's Own Hall in celebration of a $1.2 million grant from Newman's Own Foundation."

The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk’s IMAX Theater, in cooperation with Miller Motorcars of Greenwich, seeks your inner spy. To help promote the Aquarium’s limited engagement of the new James Bond 007 movie “Skyfall” in the Aquarium’s newly renovated IMAX® theater, Miller Motorcars is going to display a gorgeous Aston Martin Virage sports car in front of the Aquarium’s main entrance Saturday, Sunday and Monday, January 19, 20 & 21.

Enter by posing with the Aston Martin that will parked outside The Maritime Aquarium's main entrance Jan. 19-21.

Your mission should you decide to accept it . . . no, wait, wrong spy.

Come down to the Aquarium, snap a picture of you with the Aston Martin, post it to the Aquarium’s Facebook wall: and you will be automatically entered to win. In fact, post on our wall a very short video of you doing your best impression of this famous movie line, “Bond, James Bond” and we’ll put your name in twice! You know, something like this: or like this: and cue the music!


Yes, rules, there are always rules.(Phuyuck!)

Contest dates are Saturday through Monday, January 19, 20 & 21, 2013, only.

Only photos and videos posted to the The Maritime Aquarium’s Facebook Wall are eligible. You must have your name attached in some way to the photo so we can track you down if you win! Please “Like” the Aquarium to see all the entries and find out first about future contests, events, IMAX movies and more.

Random drawing.  For each Facebook picture post, the name associated with the photo will be manually entered into a prize drum. For each Facebook video post, the name associated with the video will be manually entered twice into a prize drum. On Tuesday, January 22, 2013, at 1:30 p.m. in the Cascade Cafe, all the names entered into the prize drum will be well mixed and Aquarium visitors chosen at random will draw the prize winners.

Photo and Video post guidelines.  Creativity is encouraged! Dress up! Show us your best spy impersonation. Please, no obscene or offensive gestures or comments. Props are okay but no guns or weapons of any kind, toys or otherwise, may be displayed. If you feel demonstrating a gun is critical to your pose, your hand and extended index finger will do just fine, thank you. You may not cross the blue gates or touch the car in any way.

By posting your photo or video you grant rights to The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk and Miller Motorcars to use your image and statements for any promotional purposes in perpetuity. Posters under the age of 18 must include name of legal parent or guardian and in so doing grant this permission. After the contest, we’ll create a photo/video mash-up of all the entries and post it on Facebook and our web site.

Claiming your prize. All prizes must be claimed in person at the Aquarium’s main entrance during regular business hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, between January 22 and February 1, 2013. Photo ID required. Any unclaimed prizes will not be awarded.

Year of IMAX movies prize. You will receive two IMAX movie vouchers valid for each month from February 2013 through January 2014. Vouchers are valid for Hollywood or Classic IMAX movies at The Maritime Aquarium IMAX theater only. Vouchers must be used in the named month and may not be extended or accumulated. The Maritime Aquarium cannot guarantee a Hollywood movie every month, but your vouchers will be honored equally for Classic documentary movies. No cash value. May not be sold, combined with other offers or assigned to another party.

No age restriction. But if you are too young to have a photo ID, please also include the name of a parent or guardian with a photo ID in your entry.

No purchase necessary. But we’d love to have you visit the Aquarium and see “Skyfall” in our amazing IMAX® theater. Movie ends February 10th.

Aquarium staff and volunteers are encouraged to post their photos and videos, but must identify themselves as staff and are not eligible to win. Sorry.
