The IMAX Theatre is one of the more exciting Canadian inventions that everyone can enjoy.   The signature screens can be eight stories tall, and going to watch an engrossing IMAX film is considered the premiere movie experience the world over.

IMAX -- broadening the horizons of the world (IMAX)

The IMAX system has its roots in EXPO '67 in Montreal, Canada where multi-screen films were the hit of the fair. A small group of Canadian filmmakers/entrepreneurs who had made some of those popular films, decided to design a new system using a single powerful projector, rather than the cumbersome multiple projectors used at that time. The result: the IMAX motion picture projection system, which would revolutionize giant-screen cinema.
