They're the next best thing to actual round-trip tickets
to the International Space Station, and they're available
to APEGGA members at a special discount. What they are is
tickets to the film SPACE STATION in IMAX, departing daily
until March 30 on the huge screen at the Odyssium.
Narrated by Tom Cruise and billed as "a spectacular journey,"
the show treats viewers as crew members on a round trip to
the Space Station. It provides an up-close glimpse of what
weightlessness is like, and what it feels like to travel at
28,000 km/h to an orbiting mass more than 350 kilometres above
The IMAX production is the story of how 16 nations have come
together to build a dream - widely considered the greatest
engineering feat since the manned moon landing. The International
Space Station is home away from home for these astronauts
and cosmonauts, who are reaching new frontiers in space travel
and life. In actual footage filmed by the astronauts and cosmonauts,
viewers will see the challenges the voyagers face.
APEGGA is a contributing sponsor of SPACE STATION in IMAX.
In recognition, the Odyssium offers Association members tickets
in bulk at up to 20 per cent off, to encourage as many staff
and associates as possible to attend. The tickets make excellent
staff incentives, and employee recognition or team-building
Tickets are available by calling (780) 451-3344 or by stopping
