As I'm sure you all know, Expo 70 was the site of the first IMAX theater, although it was quite different in many respects from all that would follow it.

Does anyone here have any images or information about the IMAX theater and the Fuji Pavilion in which it was housed? I have one image of the exterior: it was a large, orange-yellow, inflatable building shaped roughly like a Quonset hut. (See attached.)

I'm interested in other views of the exterior, and particularly of interior shots, if any are extant. Also, any other details about the building, the theater, etc.

Here are three exterior pictures, from my Expo 70 postcard collection. (click on each one to enlarge them)

Thanks, Randy.

Apparently the image I tried to attach didn't get attached. I'll try again.

Would someone send me a high resolution copy of a photograph showing the Fuji Pavilion at Osaka in 1970 along with the

permission to use it ? at sbeauvais@technomuses.ca

We would use it for a web project at the Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation,


Thanks !
