Imax to go out way it came in

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

THE Imax the­atre at Portage Place will go out the way it came in, screen­ing the made-in-Man­i­toba film Heart­land on its fi­nal day of op­er­a­tion on Sun­day, March 31.

The screen­ings will take place at 12 p.m., 1:15 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. Ad­mis­sion is free.

While the Portage Place Imax screen was sub­stan­tially big­ger than the ri­val Imax screen at Sil­ver City Polo Park, it could not com­pete be­cause it was de­nied book­ings of first-run Imax re­leases. Its clo­sure was an­nounced in Jan­uary.

The 1987 film Heart­land, shot specif­i­cally for the Portage Place venue, features home­grown im­ages in­clud­ing a bal­let pas-de-deux by Royal Win­nipeg Bal­let stars Eve­lyn Hart and An­dre Lewis and an­i­ma­tion by Richard Condie.
