“Santa vs. the Snowman 3D” returns to
Chattanooga’s IMAX 3D® Theater Nov.18

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (Oct. 27, 2005) – Don’t miss the return of an animated holiday favorite – the popular IMAX holiday film, “Santa vs. the Snowman” returns to the Tennessee Aquarium IMAX 3D Theater.

“Santa vs. the Snowman” adds a new dimension to the holidays – the third dimension. This animated film delivers a bag full of laughs for the holidays with a tale of unstoppable hilarity and visual magic that may just become the most popular, must-see holiday family tradition for years to come.

“Santa vs. the Snowman” brings the laugh-out-loud story of a Santa/Snowman showdown to the IMAX large-format screen. This immersive adventure transports kids of all ages from the theatre straight to Santa’s Workshop in the North Pole.

“Santa vs. the Snowman” features the celebrity voices of Jonathan Winters, Ben Stein and Victoria Jackson. Turning tradition on its head, the film tells the heartwarming story of the loneliest Snowman who at first is swept away by the magical wonders of Santa's Village, only to ultimately wage war on Santa because he is jealous of all the attention that Santa gets during Christmas time. What ensues is a polar feud of hilarious proportions, where ultimately friendship reigns supreme and audiences are rewarded with a heart-melting holiday message.

“‘Santa vs. the Snowman 3D’ captures the true holiday spirit, but with a comedic twist that I feel will keep adults as well as children entertained,” said executive producer Steve Oedekerk. “Seeing the images in staggering size on the gigantic IMAX screen, in true 3D animation, brings narrative storytelling into a new dimension.”
