A stunning start to a now well-liked format
1 September 2005 | by crap-24See all my reviews

I first saw this the year it, and the first IMAX theatre, opened at Ontario Place in 1971. I must have seen it 50 times since as I worked there in subsequent summers and would sneak out from the employee lounge under the seating to watch the audience's reaction when the picture blows up from a small window to the full screen and they suddenly find themselves tearing along just above the waters of a northern lake.

I just noticed that it has been a regular feature at the Cinesphere this past summer and I'd go and see it again if I wasn't stuck in Vancouver. :-(
