NORWALK, CT - Experience “Dunkirk” bigger, brighter and sharper than anywhere else in Connecticut beginning July 20 when Christopher Nolan’s World War II drama premieres in the immersive 70mm IMAX® film format exclusively at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.

Nolan – director of the “Dark Knight” trilogy, “Inception” and “Interstellar” – shot nearly all of “Dunkirk” with IMAX cameras, and the fullest way to experience “Dunkirk” in Connecticut is possible only at The Maritime Aquarium. The popular South Norwalk attraction has the state’s largest IMAX screen – it’s six stories tall – and still projects with 70mm film, which movie buffs know is the biggest, brightest, sharpest and clearest format. (One frame of IMAX film has upwards of 18,000 pixels of resolution, compared to 1,920 in a home HDTV.)

The Maritime Aquarium’s is one of only about 30 IMAX theaters in the country that will offer “Dunkirk” in 70mm film projection.

“Dunkirk” will play at The Maritime Aquarium at 7 & 9:30 p.m. July 20-30. It then will show at 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, and at 7 & 9:30 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for children 12 & under. Maritime Aquarium members receive $1 discounts.

“IMAX cameras are big, heavy, expensive and noisy, but Christopher Nolan has been using them more and more in his movies,” Aquarium spokesman Dave Sigworth. “In interviews, Nolan says he uses the IMAX format to make his movies an immersive experience. ‘Dunkirk’ certainly looks to be that.”

Sigworth noted that much of what Nolan captured with the IMAX camera will be cropped off when “Dunkirk” is shown in local cinemas, whose screens are more horizontal.

“At The Maritime Aquarium, ‘Dunkirk’ will fill our screen, so our audiences will see up to 40 percent more of the action,” he said.


“Dunkirk” tells the true story of the heroic evacuation in May-June 1940 of some 338,000 Allied soldiers trapped on the English Channel shoreline by an advancing German army. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were gradually evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found.

The ensemble cast includes Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, Fionn Whitehead and One Direction’s Harry Styles.

“Dunkirk” is 107 minutes long, and is rated PG-13 for intense war scenes and some language.

Besides directing the movie, Nolan also wrote the screenplay and co-produced it with Emma Thomas. Executive producer is Jake Myers.
