No matter your age, weather condition or time of day, IMAX ALWAYS makes a huge impression on my soul, mind and spirit.

Just saw "Sully" at IMAX here. We have annual passes - about $50 - and saw the movie for $4 each! and we see many more throughout the year. And with the new seats, screen and laser projection system it is the best place in town to go to the movies.

Love all the new improvements. It makes for a very comfortable and enjoyable time at the movies. Just about all the IMAX films are great and now with the new chairs, sitting though a Hollywood film is a pleasure. Love that there are new films coming all the time and that there are special events for pass holders. Thanks Paul... More
