    It looks like it might be one of those survivor movies like 72 days. But I'll see it for the effects. The "atmosphere" of space scenes always fills me with awe.

    Wish they got Natalie Portman instead of Bullock. Bullock is okay, but, I don't know.

    I can't believe I haven't read anything by him. He wrote so much, and I love the movies base on his books.

    What was the story called? I'll probably buy it tomorrow.

    Doubt it'll be playing there. Wishful thinking though.

    If you would, please give them a call and request it. It'll only take a minute.
    IMAX Office: (416) 696-1000

    Please! It'll be worth it. If I can get enough people to call and request it, we can see some great scenery in a cinema that's so great, I don't need to tell you.

    My bad. When I saw the IMAX photo, I assumed. Anything space related would be incredible on the big screen.

    My fave to date was the Titanic.

    Fun Fact: My dad's boss' dad from years ago had a hand in building the CANADARM. I know that's not exactly earth shattering, but I just remembered, lol

    i had this cool ass book of sci-fi stories, cant remember the name of it but kaleidoscope was in there. I read it when i was in grade 4 or 5 and remember trying to show a teacher it because we were reading dumb shit and she didnt care and kept reading us bullshit.

    lol

    It's my bad, too. I was trying to generate interest.

    It's Earth shattering to me. The Canadarm is key, the ISS' opposable thumb. There's a scale replica of it hanging above the Science Center Imax Box office.

    Give em a call, I could use the help. Plus, we all benefit!

    No wonder it stuck with you. You're in grade five, reading about a person who knows with certainty that they're moments from death? WTF? Experiencing something like that with the imagination of a child is more intense than I'd like for someone in grade five. I'm sure grade fives understand death, but this is meant to be emotionally graphic. Not exactly Mario jumping on a koopa.

    haha, yeah i loved that type of stuff though.

    fucking calgary man, for years and years they had the worst science center. It was lame even to kids. Even the planetarium part was weak. For like 20yrs they didnt do anything with it so i grew up with a terrible science center lol

    they made it better now like 2 years ago or something. But the coolest thing is the observatory out in the country you could go to and look at shit with an astronomer. My pops had a decent one for a hobby too.

    The Science Center in T.O. seemed pretty cool when I was a kid, but the last time I was there was elementary school, lol. The one in my city is only ok, imo. Just glad we have the IMAX.
