IMAX film is the world’s largest format; each frame of film is nearly 10 times larger than film shown in local movie houses. With its enormous size, IMAX film captures the slightest details with stunning clarity. That's accompanied by an amazing 12,000-watt, laser-aligned, digital surround-sound system that lets you hear the slightest splash or the faintest puff of air, while also rocking the house during thunderous space-shuttle launches and whale breaches.
Together, the sights and sounds combine for the most immersive movie-going thrill: The IMAX Experience®, the ultimate movie experience.
With 310 seats, our theater also makes an intimate venue for lecture series and special events. Also, the theater can be rented for business meetings and presentations. Beyond our primary documentary and educational movies, we often show Hollywood movies as an added bonus for our visitors. By enjoying these movies you help support our mission to protect Long Island Sound. The Maritime Aquarium is a non-profit institution. Thank you.
(Sorry, but we do not offer 3-D movies at this time.)
