Stunning Ariel photography, combined with a history lesson about Canada that should be mandatory viewing by all Canadians, and all others with an ambition to learn.

A super couples movie. Sylvester Stallone shows up in his finest role in decades. Combo available with the museum. Check out the food trucks in the special lot at the back.

Saw the Rocky Mountain Express that is currently playing at the IMAX Victoria. A fantastic film that celebrates the railroad that built Canada! This is easily in the top 3 best IMAX movies. Suitable for all ages! A definite "must see".
