Based in Portland Oregon, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for one fan to experience the magnificent creative vision, the mind-blowing craft, and the meticulous detail of the first ever high-definition stop-motion animated feature to be filmed in 3-D!
A high-definition stop-motion animated feature – the first to be originally filmed in 3-D – with spectacular CG effects, based on Neil Gaiman’s international best-selling book. A young girl (Dakota Fanning) walks through a secret door in her new home and discovers an alternate version of her life. On the surface, this parallel reality is eerily similar to her real life – only much better. But when this wondrously off-kilter, fantastical adventure turns dangerous, and her counterfeit parents (including Other Mother [Teri Hatcher]) try to keep her forever, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness, determination, and bravery to get back home – and save her family.

Writers: Henry Selick; Based on the book by Neil Gaiman
