Canadian Museum of Civilization presents JERUSALEM: A spectacular cinematic journey that explores the intersection of history, science and religion

The city of Jerusalem is sacred to half the people on Earth; it has been fought over more than any other place in history, conquered and destroyed, rebuilt and re-invented repeatedly over 5,000 years. Now, for the first time ever, a new 3D giant-screen film adventure immerses audiences in a spectacular cinematic journey. Soaring high above the Holy Land and plunging deep into Jerusalem’s vibrant Old City, audiences can experience as never before the iconic sites cherished by billions. JERUSALEM opened on September 27 at the Canadian Museum of Civilization’s IMAX® Theatre.

This 45-minute large-format film gives audiences a rare glimpse of the storied city, as well as exclusive access to iconic holy sites — including the Western Wall, the Dome of the Rock, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the Jordan River, the Sea of Galilee and the mountain fortress of Masada — and to little-known parts of the region.
