Thanks so much for posting the trailer to the movie. For anyone interested, there is a website www.mysteriesofthegreatlakes.com. If you click on films in production and then theatre listings, you will find a schedule for a few fortunate cities in Canada and the US.

It's coming to a city near me in the fall of this year and in the eloquent words of Homer Simpson: WOO HOO!!

Also, click on production updates; they are sort of monthly journals on the making of the film and they are in PDF format.

ahh.. it's a Science North Production - it's a great place in Sudbury..very hands on and set in the beautiful rockface of Northern Ontario..
http://www.mysteriesofthegreatlakes....ercurrents.pdf
also at that link a shot of University Ave.in Toronto during a snowstorm this past January..
also interesting to note is one of the sponsors - Unilever - maker of all kinds of soaps that contain phosphates that pollute our waters..hmm... and the OPG - the folks who build/run our nuclear power plants in Ontario..
The director states at the end of the 'tour' of 10 spots they filmed: "If you get to all of these spots, you’ll be in an exclusive
group of less than 10 people – most of them members of our crew. If you get to
even a few of them, you’ll do better than most of the 40 million plus people who live
on the Great Lakes."
I've been to 8 of the 10.. the trip around Superior is a long one but absolutely beautiful..

The Directors blog is fascinating reading and I can't wait to see the footage they took of Niagara Falls with the IMAX camera suspended out over them and a foot above the water..omigoodness..The footage of the bald eagles will be amazing and the story of how the whole crew almost ended up at the bottom of Superior is quite the story..He recalls seeing the IMAX film "North of Superior" at Ontario Place a long time ago and the shots from the planes/helicopters..i remember that movie too and the vertigo I felt. The November shoot on a freighter in Hamilton (west of Toronto on L.Ontario) will be an insight as most of us have never experienced being on a huge freighter.

I might just imagine that Mr. Lightfoot may have wanted to attend the World Gala opening in Sudbury on May 3 if he weren't performing in Kitchener that evening.....I'd bet that he's been invited tho!
The Toronto opening at the Science Centre is also the night of the first Massey Show (for the media)..it opens to the public on May 9..

I am going to see this movie for sure!
4 showings a day:
