Rocky Mountain Express propels audiences on a steam train journey through the breathtaking vistas of the Canadian Rockies and relates the epic adventure of building the nation’s first transcontinental railway. Presented in IMAX® 4K Laser Projection. 
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. Ride the rails along deep river canyons and over high mountain passes. Discover some of the most beautiful, rugged landscapes on earth to the heroic human drama and epic engineering that shaped a continent.

“Rocky Mountain Express’ not only shows the Canadian Rockies in all their glory, but it also demonstrates what it’s like to ride on The Empress, aka the Canadian Pacific 2816, a restored train from the 1930s.”
