Heroic dogs star in sweet new IMAX movie "Superpower Dogs"

NORWALK, CT  –  Follow heroic dogs working around the world to save lives – and learn the science behind their amazing abilities – in “Superpower Dogs,” a new IMAX adventure opening March 15 on the giant screen of The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.

Narrated by another cinema superhero, Chris Evans (“Captain America”), “Superpower Dogs” will play at 11 a.m. and 2 & 4 p.m. daily through May 17 on The Maritime Aquarium’s six-story screen. New show times begin on May 18 and again July 1.

This emotional new IMAX movie takes audiences from Florida to California, and from Italy to Africa, to meet remarkable dogs and to discover the powerful bond they share with their human partners. The dogs include:
•  Halo, a Dutch shepherd puppy training to join an elite disaster-response team in Florida.
•  Henry, a border collie that is an avalanche rescue expert in the Canadian Rockies.
•  Reef, a Newfoundland lifeguard with the Italian Coast Guard.
•  Ricochet, a surfing golden retriever helping people in California with special needs.
•  and the bloodhound brothers, Tipper & Tony, who are engaged in the fight to stave off poachers and save endangered species in Africa.

Through “Superpower Dogs,” experience the world through the eyes, ears and nose of a dog, and see how humans are harnessing dogs’ cognitive, sensory and intuitive super powers.
