The Victoria IMAX is a wonder to experience. The sound system and large screen bring 3D Movies to life. A new 4K HD system is there for you with comfortable 3D glasses.

Dear Lynn, Thank you for your visit yesterday and sorry to hear a few things weren't entirely to your liking. It seems that due our busy shows yesterday you may have ended up in the front rows which I agree can be too uncomfortable for some people (myself included). With regard to "need better seating" see the TripAdvisor comment on... More

Fabulous film & incredible presentation! As a long time Star Trek fan having grown up with the TV series, it's interesting that some of the technology they forecast is now with us. For example isn't the cell phone pretty much a communicator, especially if you're using voice to text? Remember the Hologram room on the Enterprise where you could experience... More

Dear GaryReg, Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to leave a detailed review for others. You are correct, the current seats were chosen by our patrons while they were on display in the lobby. Over 1,000 votes were received and #6 (as we call it) was the clear choice. That being said, not every seat suits... More

This is a great way to see a movie, comfortable seats, big screen, lots of leg room. I suggest ordering tickets early as they tend to sell out of the big movie titles each night. Tickets can be purchased online.

Quite the state of the art movie theater!! Great picture! Great sound!! However, a bit claustrophobic seating! The seats are all one row and once you are seated, there is no getting out! Choose a seat on the side or right at the back fir an easier exit. Not sure how easy it would be to get out in case... More

Dear Rosster, Thank you for your kind words and recent visit. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your experience although we do understand that watching a show with almost 400 people (at peak times) could feel a little claustrophobic for some people. Last year when we installed the IMAX 4K laser system, we also took the opportunity to put... More

Excellent value. We are season pass holders and usually attend everything that is showing. The full length movie are also a great value,and an added bonus is being able to select your seats and get your tickets online.

Attended a movie at the IMAX at the Royal BC Museum on Friday and it was a great experience. The screen, sound and seats are all excellent and it was very comfortable to watch a lengthy production. The seats are kind of "tilty" meaning you can shift your position for comfort - which I did - and didn't disturb others... More

If you're looking for a quiet movie experience the IMAX may not be for you. On the other hand it's a great place to bring kids for the nature pics and if you buy the yearly pass, if you go regularly, it's definitely worth the money. Visually it's great and the Hollywood movies are terrific.
