“This is the theater at the Hearst Castle Visitors Center”
Reviewed 25 September 2011

You have to love IMAX, it makes for great movies. I suggest seeing the movie first, although it is very Hollywood. You can see the first show at 8:15 and then get on the 9:00 am tour. By watching the movie, you will appreciate the story of the Castle as well as Hearst the man. You will also understand why the tour guides keep calling this very Hollywood and point out the inaccuracies in the movie. Four dots because I am taking away a dot for not mentioning Marion Davies, aka Marion the Chatelaine.

The theater price is included as part of your tour ticket.
