IMAX Movie "Backyard Wilderness"

Maritime Aquarium At Norwalk
9/10/18 - 10/4/18


This charming new IMAX® movie reminds audiences that natural beauty is mere steps away, right in our own back yards, if only we would put down our devices.

In The Maritime Aquarium’s 30-year history, “Backyard Wilderness” may be the IMAX movie that is most relevant to Aquarium audiences – and not just because the movie was filmed just across the state line in Westchester County, N.Y.

Show times from Sept. 4 to Oct. 4 are 11 a.m. and 1 & 3 p.m. daily.

“Backyard Wilderness” shows how we often overlook a menagerie of wildlife right outside our homes, including deer, coyotes, wood ducks, frogs, salamanders, raccoons, hummingbirds and more. 

The beauty of a suburban wilderness is captured in rare intimacy by IMAX cameras – mounted inside dens and nests, moving along forest floor and pond bottom, and (through time-lapse and slow-motion) revealing marvels of nature unavailable to the human eye. 

But a modern family is blind to the real-life spectacle around it, absorbed by its array of electronic devices, until one family member awakens them to the infinite wonders of life in the wild.

As the film says: “Wi-fi is not the only connection that matters.”
