The Red Rocket

"State-of-the-art Maple Leaf Cinema at the CN Tower features the Canadian Premiere of The Red Rocket, a film that propels audiences on an eye-popping 14-minute electric trolley journey through the vibrant heart of Metropolitan Toronto. The Red Rocket celebrates five generations of iconic Toronto streetcars that have served citizens and shaped the city since the 1890s. The film presents Toronto's storied transit history: from the first electric streetcars of the early 1890s, to the Peter Whitt trolley introduced in 1922, to the PCC cars of the 40s, 50s and 60s, and ultimately the state-of-the-art Flexity tram now merging onto the city's thoroughfares. Viewers explore Toronto from many angles: dancing with trolley wheels at street-level to soaring over the city in bird's-eye aerials. Filmed in 2013-2014, The Red Rocket premieres and will be shown exclusively at the CN Tower's Maple Leaf Cinema."
