The wonders of nature will be back larger than life when the IMAX Victoria theatre reopens in the Royal B.C. Museum Sept. 3.
Humpback Whales, narrated by actor Ewan McGregor, will help usher in the opening of the IMAX theatre which closed in November 2020 due to COVID-19 public health orders.
The film, set in the waters of Alaska, Hawaii and the remote islands of Tonga, will be shown on the theatre’s 85-foot-wide screen along with other crowd favourites, including Sea Lions: Life by a Whisker, Turtle Odyssey, and Asteroid Hunters.
“We know that local residents, IMAX Victoria pass holders and visitors to Victoria have all been looking forward to seeing the world again through the magic of IMAX Victoria,” Erika Stenson with the Royal B.C. Museum said in a release. “As Victoria and B.C. reopen to travel and tourism, we’re thrilled to reopen this popular B.C.-based experience.”
Visitors looking to take a deeper dive into the lives of whales on the Pacific Coast can combine their Humpback Whales IMAX Victoria experience with a visit to the Royal B.C. Museum’s feature exhibition, Orcas: Our Shared Future, and surface with a new appreciation of how whales and humans are inextricably connected. Combination passes – admission to both IMAX Victoria and the Royal BC Museum – are available.
Film schedules, tickets and information about COVID-19 health and safety protocols are available on the IMAX Victoria website.
