History and Trivia

  • At this location: A Circle Vision film has been part of the Canda pavilion since it opened in 1982.
  • O, Canada! was the original CircleVision 360 film that presented scenes of the wide ranging geography and culture of Canada. Filmed in the late 1970s, the original version ran from the park's opening in 1982 until 2007.

  • On August 31, 2007, a new 14-minute O Canada Circle Vision film opened, replacing the 17-minute original. The new film is designed to disspell many myths about Canada and to show a more modern look at Canada than the 25-year-old original. This version featured Canadian actor Martin Short as a narrator taking guests on a tour of the country that not only features stunning landscapes but also performances by Cirque du Soleil (based in Montreal), the Calgary Stampede and more. 2006 "Canadian Idol" winner Eva Avila sings "Canada (You're a Lifetime Journey)," the song from the original film) on the soundtrack.

  • In January 2020, a new digital 360 film debuted: Candada Far & Wide in Circlevision 360. It attempts to give an even broader view of Canada and its people. Canadian actors Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara narrate with a mix of new footage and upscaled, digitally converted footage that was produced for prior versions of the show. The Eva Avila sung version of "Canada (You're a Lifetime Journey)" with new orchestration is included in the new show.
