The IMAX Nutcracker (3D)

bigImage No holiday season would be complete without The Nutcracker, E.T.A. Hoffmann's classic tale of a young girl who stumbles into an enchanted kingdom ruled by a wooden prince. Now IMAX Corporation brings a fresh, modern version of the classic to the giant IMAX screen: THE IMAX NUTCRACKER. Filmed using IMAX’s award-winning large-format technology, this is The Nutcracker as it's never been seen before -- a contemporary, non-ballet adaptation of one of the world’s most famous fairy tales, transformed into a colorful extravaganza. The stellar cast includes actress Miriam Margolyes (The Age of Innocence), and introduces Lotte Johnson playing Clara, the young protagonist, and Benjamin Hall as the Nutcracker Prince. The beloved toys, dolls, mice, puppets and acrobats who have delighted generations are brought to life by a troupe of performing artists drawn from the world of circus, mime and street theatre.
