Once in every generation, there is a holiday story that steals the hearts of millions—a classic for the whole family. A story of warmth, cuddly jolly feelings…wait, stop—There is a new holiday classic comin’ to town – that will add a new dimension to the holidays!!

This holiday season, Steve Oedekerk, O Entertainment and IMAX break new (and frozen!) ground by bringing you the first ever IMAX animated holiday feature —SANTA VS. THE SNOWMAN. IMAX brings home a bag full of laughs for the holidays with a tale of unstoppable hilarity and visual magic that may just become the most popular, must-see holiday family tradition for years to come—a wildly revolutionary Yuletide story for the new millennium. Combining the off the wall humor of Steve Oedekerk, the Academy Award® nominated creator of Jimmy Neutron who’s other hilarious films include The Nutty Professor and Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, with the Academy Award® winning IMAX Technology results in a film as funny as it is visually stunning.

Tradition is turned on its head when an innocent and lovable Snowman discovers Santa’s Village and reaches in the workshop window to pick up a shiny, new flute. What ensues is an all-out, riotous battle for Christmas, with the Snowman and his minions squaring off against Santa and his elf army for the rights to the worldwide gift delivery franchise of the jolly man in red.

SANTA VS. THE SNOWMAN brings the laugh-out-loud story of a Santa/Snowman showdown to the IMAX large-format screen in high-tech computer-generated animation. The holidays have never before looked like this…on screens up to 8 stories tall, surrounded by 12,000 watts of uncompressed digital sound!!!!
