We came to see Gravity in this Imax and were not the slightest disappointed. The screen is enormous and made us feel as though we were not just watching the movie, but a part of it. The sound is good and the seats are comfortable.

I love a deal and since I am a senior, I really appreciate saving a dollar or two. With the price of movies (especially 3D Imax) to get the whole package it's going to cost a lot more than the 35 cents it used to.....More

Most Imax theaters in big towns are expensive and (at least to me) are rarely worth the big bucks one has to shell out to see a movie in those venues. However, this Imax theater is far less expensive than those others. When we went...More

Good theater, rarely full, discounts can be found. Theater is clean and comfortable and the IMAX experience is great.

Coachella Valley is fortunate to have one of the few IMAX theaters left in the country. The movie choices are always a pleasant surprise. And there is a selection of superb restaurants close by, too.

it's a smaller IMAX but has the capability of showing 3D movies. If the movie playing is not to your liking the Pickford ( 6 or 8 screens) is right across the parking lot.

This Imax has a very large screen. If you want to see a movie giant size this is the place. Only bad thing is very uncomfortable seat. .
