School Visits

IMAX® School Visit Screenings

Whether your students dive beneath the waves, encounter exotic animals or take a step with astronauts from NASA, our large format films provide students of all ages with larger-than-life experiences that captivate, enlighten and inspire. Many IMAX® films are supported by an Educator Guide, giving you additional tools to enhance learning, facilitate themed activities and expand on film topics in your classroom.

See what’s on our current schedule, or pick a film from our library for a 9AM and 10AM Library Screening.

IMAX® Virtual School Visits

When you cannot come to the theatre, educational and inspiring documentary films come to you! With Virtual Screenings, educators can access a selection of 40-45 minute documentary films for viewing in the classroom. Educator resources, including lesson plans, activities, discussion questions and supporting documents are included with each screening to expand learning.
