I don't know why that is but all IMAX is so so ...We go in with a high expectations and come out with a bit somber.Too educational and not fun enough? Don't know why .

Dear GlobetrotterADR,
Thank you for your most recent visit and equally important, your feedback.
I'm sorry to hear your IMAX Experience(s) haven't lived up to your expectations. IMAX documentary films are known for their quality, but can sometimes (depending on the film) lean more towards an educational focus than an entertaining one. The films that are popular, do both. Rocky Mountain Express and Flight of the Butterflies are two fine examples of this. Another film that's superbly done is JERUSALEM which will open here in August.
Don't give up on your IMAX Experience - I know a number of IMAX films out there or in the pipeline that should hit high on the fun meter!
Best regards,
Paul Wild

IMAX theatres look the same anywhere. This one was clean, fairly priced and had a good choice of films. We saw the Viking one and enjoyed it. They were also running a D-Day film and Lemurs. The connection to the museum is nice, so you can blend the activities.

Since my husband is of Scandinavian descent we decided to view this IMAX movie. Learned a lot about Viking history. Movie was good, but not quite as dramatic as other IMAX movies we've seen , yet I would still recommend going.

Dear JKS55,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review for others. We are pleased to hear you learned a lot while watching the IMAX film Vikings: Journey to New Worlds.

As you may already know, this IMAX film makes a for a great companion film to the Viking exhibition currently on display here at the Royal BC Museum until November this year.

Once again, thank you. We do appreciate your recent visit to IMAX Victoria.
Kindest regards,
Paul Wild

The location near everything downtown, the magnitude of the screen (best seats in the middle, two rows under the highest row), the variety of the shows and even the gift shop, close to the also very good one of the Royal Museum
