Wonderful camera but somehow boring script which is not very attractive for kids. But we left more money in attached gift shop than for the tickets so wasn't that painful.

This was just ok. My kids were pretty bored with it, and honestly, so was I. There’s a much better film in the visitors center in the park itself. And that one’s free.

We stopped off at the theatre on our way out of town, and enjoyed our stop. However, I wouldn’t go out of my way for it, or prioritize visiting if time was limited at the Grand Canyon. The cinematography is beautiful, but rather dated. I...More

Although it’s a nice place to go with a good environment. The movie is shot in 1984. Think its time for a movie upgrade. It has nice shots etc. but now its 2018 we should and can expect a little more!!

This theater is co-located with National Geographic Store. National Geo should be ashamed to be associated with this inaccurate fabrication of a mis-named move. The National Geographic Society in part supported John Wesley Powell’s exploration of the Grand Canyon. He would cringe to see himself...More

We went here as a way to take a break from hiking on our photo tour. It was a decent movie - clearly not the best IMAX I have seen. It was good with lots of helicopter and/or drone flyovers of the Canyon, but not...More
