It’s the biggest dam movie you’ll ever see!

A parent- and teacher-favorite, this classic IMAX movie makes a special return run for Fall 2017 on The Maritime Aquarium’s six-story screen.

“Beavers” plunges viewers into the lives of one of nature’s greatest engineers. Set in a pristine forest of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, this film follows a family of beavers as they grow, play and transform the world around them. Leaving the shelter of an overcrowded colony, a young pair of beavers set out over land in search of a location for their new home. A site is found and the beavers begin a monumental project: the total transformation of the surrounding area to suit their aquatic needs.

Through breathtaking underwater photography, audiences travel inside the lodge for a rare look at these charming and industrious creatures.
