IMAX® Victoria is located inside the Royal BC Museum in Victoria, BC, Canada.

The theatre opened in June 1998 and hosted more than 80,000 people in the first month. Local residents and visitors loved the new theatre in town and its first feature film, Whales. Since that time, more than seven million people have enjoyed the IMAX® Experience at IMAX® Victoria.
