Previous Names: Canadian Museum of Civilization
The Canadian Museum of Civilization, located just across the river from Ottawa, Canada’s capital, was opened on June 29, 1989 and currently has two theatres.
The first was opened with the museum in 1989. It has a seating capacity of 500, and is equipped with two Cinemeccanica Victoria 8 projectors capable of projecting 70mm with 6-track magnetic audio. The theatre’s speakers are properly laid out to reproduce the five front channels and one surround channel present on most early 70mm prints. This theatre is also used for live performances and lectures. This is one of the last theatres left in Canada that is able to project 5-perf 70mm film.
The second theatre is an IMAX theatre, also opened in 1989. It has a seating capacity of 295, and is one of the only IMAX theatres that is equipped with both a flat screen and a dome, which are used interchangeably depending on the film. This theatre was originally equipped with an IMAX GT projector, but was later equipped with two IMAX SR projectors for 3D films. In 2016 the IMAX projectors were replaced with a Barco projector and it was renamed Cine+
