Rocky Mountain Express

 

Rocky Mountain Express

NOW SHOWING

SHOWTIMES: 1:00 pm

Rocky Mountain Express propels audiences on a steam train journey through the breathtaking vistas of the Canadian Rockies and highlights the adventure of building the nation’s first transcontinental railway. The completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) in the Rockies in 1885 ranks among the greatest engineering feats in history. Retracing the original route aboard the majestic steam engine 2816, the audience is transported back to the age of steam to re-live this alpine nation-building odyssey. The film weaves together spectacular IMAX aerial cinematography, breathtaking vistas of the west, archival images and maps and the potent energy and rhythms of a live steam locomotive to immerse audiences in an era of remarkable ingenuity and struggle and a region of stunning natural beauty.
