What's New at the Montreal Science Centre

MONTREAL, Feb. 22, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Moviegoers now can enjoy a more immersive experience with the new laser system at the IMAX® TELUS theatre, the first of its kind in Quebec. Wild America 3D, with its vistas of staggering grandeur, is the ideal film for the IMAX laser experience. As well as this upgrade to its film offer, the Science Centre is opening a new exhibition zone on the human of the future.

The IMAX®TELUS theatre now offers the most enveloping cinematic experience in the world. With the latest generation of IMAX laser projection as well as an entirely new sound system, the theatre will boast crystal clear images, colours of breathtaking intensity and totally immersive digital sound.

The new technology will be evident in the film Wild America 3D, which plunges the viewer into some of the world's most spectacular landscapes. The film is an extraordinary exploration of more than 30 American national parks. Quality images, filmed with IMAX 3D cameras, soar over the heights of the Rockies and dive down cliffs on a journey to the most legendary places in the United States.

In addition, the Science Centre is unveiling a whole new area in the permanent exhibition Human that hints at what might await humanity in the future. Designed by the Science Centre team, this interactive exhibition includes several multimedia games that let visitors simulate stem cell transplants, integrate implants into the body, and more.

Visitors will be able to enjoy these new features at a reduced price during spring break. From February 23 to March 12, four permanent exhibitions as well as an IMAX film will cost just $20 (adult price). An immersive, interactive outing sure to delight the entire family!
