The IMAX movie that is a “gas, gas, gas” rocks back onto The Maritime Aquarium's giant screen on Sat., Jan. 26 when the Rolling Stones concert film, “Shine A Light,” returns for one special show.Directed by Martin Scorsese and featuring more than 20 songs, “Shine A Light” is a great way to celebrate this year’s 50th anniversary of the Stones.Filmed at Manhattan’s famed Beacon Theatre during the Stones’ 2006 “A Bigger Bang” tour, “Shine A Light” includes guest appearances by Christina Aguilera, blues legend Buddy Guy and White Stripes guitarist Jack White. The film also integrates rarely seen archival footage of the band – singer Mick Jagger, guitarists Keith Richards and Ron Wood, and drummer Charlie Watts – for a unique cinema experience.“Other than attending a live show, there’s really no better way to see Mick Jagger than 60 feet tall on our IMAX screen,” said Chris Loynd, the Aquarium’s marketing director. “And IMAX’s brightness, clarity and sheer size let Scorsese’s famous cinematography skills shine in full brilliance.”But movies in the IMAX format are more than just a visual experience. The Aquarium’s 12,000-watt proprietary digital surround-sound system makes it seem like you’re in the front row of a live Stones show, he added.The 122-minute film is rated PG-13 for language, drug references and smoking (tobacco).Tickets for “Shine A Light” are $11.50 for adults and $9.50 for children (ages 2 – 12). Aquarium members save $1.If you’d be “Shattered” if this show sells out without you, give yourself “Satisfaction” by purchasing tickets for “Shine A Light” in advance.
