For the past few years, my son was able to enjoy food-free movies at the IMAX theater at the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk. In fact, it’s the only movie theater he’s ever been at. With his peanut allergy, movie theaters just aren’t safe. Sadly, the Maritime Aquarium has taken this pleasure away.
We’re disappointed that IMAX theater is no longer food free. According to the Aquarium’s website, candy is now allowed in the theater:
“Food? Our new theater policy allows food and drink in the IMAX habitat. In fact we now offer pop-your-own microwave popcorn, candy, waters and sodas in our IMAX lobby.”
This is a real shame. While we like the Aquarium, we give them a thumbs down for letting down our food allergic friends.
