BOSTON – The New England Aquarium’s Simon’s IMAX Theatre has been recognized as the number one venue in the world for attendance to the giant screen movie ‘Great White Shark 3D’.

Over 240,000 people have seen the movie at the New England Aquarium, which is also shown at over 75 aquariums.

“We have tried to take it down, but we can’t,” said Aquarium VP for Marketing and Communications Jane Wolfson.

“It stays on our screen by popular demand.”

Aquarium officials say that although the movie was shot in Mexico, South Africa and New Zealand, the great white shark presence on Cape Cod has contributed to interest in the movie.
