Niagara: Miracles, Myths and Magic is a 1986 IMAX film directed and produced by Kieth Merrill. The film, currently shown hourly at Niagara Falls State Park's Adventure Theater on the American side of the border and multiple times daily (for a fee) at the IMAX Theatre located on the Canadian side of the border, shows the history of the Niagara Falls, dating back to the earliest legends.

The film also shows the creation and history of the Maid of the Mist boats.[1]

Part of the film's focus is people who braved the falls, such as a tight-rope walker, a barrel rider, and those unfortunate enough to accidentally plunge over the Falls. Actors portraying Annie Edson Taylor, Roger Woodard and Charles Blondin (played by Philippe Petit) appear in the film.
