Consider yourself … happy to have joined The Maritime Aquarium as we offer special showings of “Oliver!,” winner of six Academy Awards, on March 15 & 16 as a free exclusive thank you to our members.

“Unlimited admission to the Aquarium and discounts on events and programs aren’t the only benefits of membership,” said Sam Ross, director of development. “We’re happy to offer exclusive invitations to events like the ‘Oliver!’ screenings, as well as the opportunity to buy tickets to lectures and other offerings before they go on sale to non-members.”
“Oliver” stars Ron Moody, Mark Lester and Jack Wild in a musical adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic novel “Oliver Twist,” about a boy in Victorian London who runs away from an orphanage and hooks up with a group of boys trained to be pickpockets by an elderly mentor.
The 1968 film was nominated for 11 Academy Awards and brought home six, including Best Picture, Director (Carol Reed), Best Musical Adaptation Score and a special honorary Oscar for the film’s choreography.
Memorable songs from the musical include “Food, Glorius Food,” “Where is Love?,” “Consider Yourself,” “I’d Do Anything” and “Who Will Buy?”
(Please note that while the screenings occur in The Maritime Aquarium’s giant-screen IMAX Theater, the film will not be shown in the IMAX® film format.)
“Oliver!” is 153 minutes long and rated G.
