Rockey Mountain Express propels audiences on a steam train journey through the breathtaking vistas of the Canadian Rockies and relates the epic adventure of building the nation’s first transcontinental railway.

Filmed in Alberta and B.C., the film tells the story of the completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) which ranks among the greatest engineering feats in history. Spanning thousands of miles and some of the world’s greatest natural barriers, this grand project drew together far flung communities isolated in the wilderness and helped shape a new nation.

The inspiring story of love, dedication, and the remarkable bond between humans and animals. This film documents orphaned orangutans and elephants and the extraordinary people who rescue and raise them - saving endangered species one life at a time.

Stunningly captured in IMAX, Born to be Wild is a heartwarming adventure transporting moviegoers into the lush rainforests of Borneo with world-renowned primatologist Dr. Birute Mary Galdikas, and across the rugged Kenyan savannah with celebrated elephant authority Dame Daphne Sheldrick, as they and their teams rescue, rehabilitate and return these incredible animals back to the wild.
