Imax or Omnimax

Imax or Omnimax are attractions where you can go to see a really big show.

Imax/Omnimax Theatre Vancouver

I’m not kidding ...these movie screens are five stories high!

Imax is a film projection system that shows movies on a very large screen and it was invented by three Canadians.

The Imax Theatre that used to be at Canada Place is gone but you can still see a show in Omnimax at Science World.

The difference between imax and omnimax is that imax movies are on a huge flat screen like your television and omnimax movies are shown on the curved roof of a giant theatre.

Either way watching in imax or omnimax means you’re completely surrounded by screen so your entire field of vision is filled and with omnimax the curve tends to draw you in even more.

On top of it all imax and omnimax use wrap around sound which all amounts to ingredients which can leave some people feeling a bit queasy.

Shows run about 40 minutes and they are usually in the documentary style.
