Ontario Place reopened the iconic Cinesphere to the public on November 3. The theatre is open year round and offers a variety of films for all ages. Cinesphere features a unique and immersive IMAX® theatre experience that allows for screening of films with IMAX’s laser digital and 70mm film technologies.
Provincial government funding supporting the revitalization of Ontario Place is making Cinesphere accessible again to the public and for private events.
Ontario Place welcomes everyone to experience films on the big screen, and more, at our waterfront destination IMAX theatre.
First opened in 1971, Cinesphere is the world’s first permanent IMAX theatre. The IMAX projection system is a proprietary large format projection system developed in Ontario. In 2014, the province designated Cinesphere as a structure of Cultural Heritage Value.
Graeme Ferguson’s North of Superior (1971) was the first film commissioned for and screened at Cinesphere at its 1971 grand opening and helped put the IMAX format on the map.
Current capacity holds 614 seats and 527 for 3D viewing.
