TORONTO’S ICONIC RED & WHITE STREETCARS TAKE THE LEAD ROLE IN A NEW IMAX DOCUMENTARY

The CN Tower’s Maple Leaf Cinema has commissioned a 14-minute documentary on the TORONTO streetcar. “The Red Rocket” is a fascinating look at the daily life of one of the world’s great trolley rides, and an introduction to the new vehicles which debut on Spadina Avenue in August <PHOTO ABOVE>.  The film follows the evolution of the streetcar from the wooden vehicles of the TORONTO Railway Company to the current fleet. “The Red Rocket” was made in IMAX by Stephen Low, a filmmaker who has produced features about the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway and the wreck of the Titanic.  For a preview: http://vimeo.com/88159215
