Rocky Mountain Express
From the director of TITANICA, Rocky Mountain Express propels audiences on a steam train journey through the breathtaking vistas of the Canadian Rockies, revealing along the way, the heroic human adventure and epic engineering involved in building a nearly impossible transcontinental railway. This beautiful film—shot entirely with IMAX 15/70 film cameras—brings alive the magic and drama of the steam age for audiences of all ages.
Rocky Mountain Express weaves together spectacular IMAX aerial cinematography, archival photographs and maps, and the potent energy and rhythms of a live steam locomotive to immerse audiences in this remarkable story from the age of steam. Recruited to realize this venture—one of the greatest engineering feats of all time—were engineers and laborers from around the world.
