Gaming night held at Norwalk’s Aquarium

July 31, 2008 – 12:03 pm

A demonstration of video game play on Norwalk’s Maritime Aquarium IMAX screen was held last night in hopes it will become a Saturday night tradition, “VidGames: Colossal.”

The first game to be played on the giant screen was the video game version of Kung Fu Panda, coinciding with the film’s run at the IMAX theater. The Norwalk Advocate reports:

A game-playing session will be held about 90 minutes before the 6:30 p.m. Saturday showing of the movie.

Aquarium publicist Chris Loynd warned gamers to arrive early if they want to play.

. . .

For now, only “Kung Fu Panda” and other E-10 rated games will be played … Adding popular mature-rated titles, such as “Halo” or “Call of Duty,” is a possibility in the future, and Loynd said he has a request from a company to rent the theater for a video game night.
