You don’t need a gigantic movie screen to enjoy the IMAX movie experience – in fact, you can stream them from the comfort of your home for a fraction of the cost of admission (and other streaming services). Each video rental is only $1.30 and available for 72 hours.
I grew up in southern Ontario, where elementary school class trips often brought you to the Royal Ontario Museum, the Art Gallery of Ontario or for a special treat, Canada’s Wonderland. But my favourite one every year was the Ontario Science Centre, which I’ve learned having now lived in Alberta for some time, is very similar to the Telus World of Science.
I wasn’t much into science as a subject, but between the planetarium and IMAX movies with surround sound and floor-to-ceiling brilliant visuals – even with ’80s technology, the cinematography was always breathtaking.
With many of these places currently closed across the country, I wondered about the many school-aged children who are missing out on these fun class excursions that you learned from, without ever knowing that you really were (because knowing it was educational would have been a whole lot less fun). But Telus World of Science has got you covered.
Choose from stories about ancient Egypt, dinosaurs, underwater adventures and more. And the best part, your video rental helps the centre create and maintain other science exhibits for when it’s safe to have memorable class trips again.
