IMAX Film Presentation, Panama Canal 3D: A Land Divided – A World United

View "Panama Canal 3D: A Land Divided – A World United" on one of the largest IMAX screens in the world. This sweeping cinematic event is narrated by Academy-Award winning actor Morgan Freeman and takes the viewer on an electrifying journey. Experience the locks and mechanical operations of the canal, glide airborne over Panama, the railway and the country, then discover the beauty of the tropical rainforest from the seat of a native canoe. This epic film begins in the days of the conquistadors and progresses through the American engineering achievement that revolutionized shipping. Experience the visionary efforts to expand the 100-year-old waterway to accommodate post-Panamax ships, drawing you finally into the fusion of the old and the new Panama.

What you will see along the way:

A short motorcoach ride brings you to the Miraflores Locks Visitors Center. Here, panoramic views of canal transits can be seen from the observation decks. The lock gates at Miraflores are the tallest of the three due to the extreme tidal variation that takes place in the Pacific Ocean. Depending on the size of each vessel, you can see anywhere from one to three vessels make the transit simultaneously. From the moment a vessel enters the locks, it takes approximately 10 minutes for the process to be completed.
