If you ever run out of things to do in Montreal, you may want to give the IMAX Vieux Port (Old Port) theatre a try. Have you ever experienced watching a movie at the IMAX theatre? If you have not yet had the opportunity then you should put that on the top of your to-do list when jotting down things to do in Montreal.

IMAX is a motion picture film format which is much larger than conventional film formats. By increasing the resolution of the film the picture is much clearer and can be viewed on a much larger screen. The seating arrangements at IMAX theatres are also different. Because viewers can be much closer to the screen due to increased resolution, the rows of seats are much steeper at an angel of 30 degrees. The running time of IMAX films are usually shorter than conventional films because of the cost of shooting such films. Usually documentary type movies are watched at the IMAX.

What makes watching a movie or documentary at the IMAX so special is that due to the size of the screen and the resolution of the picture it feels as if the image is right in front of you. The screen size also induces the sensation of motion with some viewers even suffering from motion sickness at times. Imagine a shark swimming right past your face or taking a dive into the top of a volcano, it truly is a thrill from the comfort of your seat.

When you are booking your seat it is recommended that you sit as far back and as close to the middle as possible to really get the full benefit of this amazing technology.

4 Star Rating I really like this Centre des sciences, the staff is really kind, the popcorn and all the snacks are nice and not so expensive but there's one thing that bother me; the movie that I went to watch the second time was super chiens, which I didn't know it was narrated by Chris Evans, so I was looking forward to listen to his voice but you only have french dubbed. I mean you can still put it in it's original language and still add french subtitles.
