The art of animation: Light Before Christmas stop-motion IMAX film @ SciPort through the holidays

The Light Before Christmas, a new giant screen film produced in stop-motion animation, opens Monday, November 23 at the IMAX Dome Theatre of Sci-Port: Louisiana’s Science Center.

The film is the tale of young Katie and her brother Makean, says Eric Gipson, who, after losing their way in a Christmas Eve blizzard, are rescued by the Candleman. He is a wise man who invites them to his cozy forest cottage and sparks their imagination with a poem, The Night Before Christmas. Sipping cocoa by the fireplace, the children are transported and become the central characters as it unfolds on the screen.

The Light Before Christmas will show at noon and 3:30 Monday through Saturday and at 4:30 Sunday through January 3. Those wishing to “IMAXimize their holidays” can see the show paired with Santa vs. the Snowman, with daily back-to-back showings; Santa vs. the Snowman shows prior to The Light Before Christmas at 2:15 Monday – Friday, 2:30 Saturday and 3:30 Sunday.
