Giant Apes!

How would you like to see a six story tall orangutan?? Check out The Maritime Aquarium's newest movie, "Born to Be Wild," and you can do just that.

The aquarium features a ginormous 2-D IMAX® Theater with a 10,000-watt digital surround sound system. Their newest film offering premiers on April 8th.

It's narrated by Morgan Freeman, and it's a documentary about orphaned elephants and orangutans - and the people who are working to save them. The movie takes place in the rain forests of Borneo and the savanna of Kenya. Take a peek at the movie trailer here (note it's 2D not 3, but the IMAX screen promises not to disappoint). Tickets range from $4.50 (child member rate) to $9 (adult non-member). To purchase your own, visit the aquarium site or just pop by 10 North Water Street in Norwalk.
