LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES Opens October 30 at the Science Centre's IMAX® TELUS Theatre

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Oct. 30, 2015) - The IMAX®TELUS Theatre and National Geographic invite you to explore the fascinating history of aviation in the film LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES, presented in collaboration with Aéro Montréal, Quebec's aerospace cluster, and Aéroports de Montréal. The movie encapsulates the history of aviation in 95 locations across 7 continents and reveals how the airplane has changed our world.

"Quebec has been a leader in the conquest of the air and space, and the aerospace sector is a mainstay of the Montréal economy," notes Julie Payette, Director of the Montréal Science Centre. "So we were eager to have the Science Centre's IMAX®TELUS Theatre present Living in the Age of Airplanes, an epic adventure that transports us across our planet through the remarkable story of aviation."

Narrated by Harrison Ford in the original version and by Quebec actor Guy Nadon in French, LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES highlights the amazing evolution that led to a world where 100,000 aircraft take off and land every day.

"As we approach the 75th anniversary of the Montréal-Trudeau Airport, Aéroports de Montréal is a proud partner of this film on global aviation history. We hope that many Montrealers will come see it and become more aware of the crucial role of aviation in the world today, especially here in Montreal, which is home to a major aerospace cluster and the headquarters of several international organizations related to aviation, including the ICAO," said Christiane Beaulieu, Vice-President Public Affairs and Communications at Aéroports de Montréal.

"With nearly 42,000 workers in the aerospace sector, over 200 SMEs, four OEMs, two specialized schools (ÉNA and ÉMAM), four university schools of engineering offering aeronautical training, and headquarters of the ICAO and IATA, greater Montréal is the international aerospace capital", noted Suzanne Benoît, President of Aéro Montréal. "Living in the Age of Airplanes is an extraordinary opportunity for us to reach aerospace enthusiasts and to show the importance of this industry in the development of our businesses and the Quebec economy."
