“This place will spoil you.”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

After watching over a dozen action films in this place, it's really difficult to go back to standard theaters. Having the sound and 3-D experience. For those attending the first showing of any movie, make sure you get there at least 60 minutes before the film. Even with being there 60 minutes ahead of time, there will still be people who have waited 90 minutes + to obtain the best seats in the house. Additionally, when you buy your tickets, just simply ask the person if the show is sold out or close to being sold out. This can also help determine when you need to jump in the waiting line. Lastly, the seat arms do go up on both sides and give you a little more elbow room if needed.

“Awesome IMAX”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

What can I say that hasn't been said? Excellent stadium seating. Superb sound system. And all for just a few dollars more than a regular theater.

“Fab!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Aside from too salty popcorn, this theater is incredible! Every seat is a good one, it's clean, and they let you eat Richardson's ice cream in the theater!

“Best Theater Experience”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

The imax theater is by far the best place to see the hit movies, especially those action packed as the sound system in the theater is out of this world making you feel like you are actually in the move. Not to mention the stadium seating assures that their is not a bad seat in the house! After this experience we can no longer go to a regular movie theater, this spoiled us!

“There is no going back after IMAX”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

There is no better place to see a movie. The theatre is comfortable, all seats have a great view, and the sound in amazing! You must go if you really want to have the best movie experience ever!! The theatre is nice and clean, and there is a very good concession stand. There is also a Fudruckers and Richardsons ice-cream under the same roof, so you want go hungry. I never miss a movie.
