IMAX To Premier First Animated Film For Large Format 3D

July 17, 2008

Prepare for lift off with Fly Me To The Moon, the first animated film created in large-format 3D, opening at the Houston Museum of Natural Science Wortham IMAX Theatre on Aug. 22. Jump aboard the legendary Apollo 11 flight to the moon with a pack of stowaway flies and experience the trials that faced the crew while traveling on this renowned mission.

Fly Me To The Moon focuses on the escapade of three young flies, Nat (Trevor Gagnon) and his companions IQ (Philip Daniel Bolden) and Scooter (David Gore). Inspired by Nat’s grandpa (Christopher Lloyd), who snuck aboard Amelia Earhart’s plane during her famed trans-Atlantic flight, this trio of fly boys steals onto the space-bound Apollo 11 rocket.

“In this fun new film, you are literally ‘a fly on the wall’ of one of the most dramatic spaceflights in history,” said Charlotte Brohi, vice president of IMAX operations. “Fly Me To The Moon is the perfect family outing; it provides an amusing approach to learning about America’s accomplishments in space and it’s brilliant graphics grab you from the start.”

Fly Me To The Moon also features legendary astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who was on board the Apollo 11 flight.

Ticket are $10 for adults, $8 for children (3-11), seniors (62+) and students with a valid college ID; and $6.50 for groups of 20 or more. For tickets, visit or call 713-639-4629.
