Admittedly it was my first Imax movie but there was definitely something 'off' with the sound. VERY loud in odd places and a very annoying reverberation in the bass. Snacks were very expensive, we got bottled water that were very small in size 6-8oz or so for $2.14 each. I've sat in more comfortable seats but they weren't too bad... More

Watched Interstellar here on a Saturday night. Great theater. Screen is huge and the sound is excellent. A little bit of a pain to watch a movie at a casino though. Parking, prices, crowds, etc. can be a bit too much. The concessions were smaller and more expensive than usual, even for a theater.

Nice theater that enabled us to see movie in 3D. Ticket agent was nice and informative. Loved seeing my first movie in 3D and family enjoyed it as well. Only forgot my Mom has seizures so she could not look at movie with the glasses on. It caused her to feel strange. But overall glad we went.

Not many people realize Tropicana has an IMAX theater. Depending on the movie it's either 3D or regular imax. I've been her numerous times. Seats are nice, place is usually quite, and that's the best part! If you bring your players card you get a discount on the tickets. wootwoot!

The movie was pretty nice, filled with kids & they all had a ball as well, I'm not a movie person but, I really enjoyed being there & the show, they showed it in 3-D. It was filled with the holiday spirit.

free tickets from the Trop gave us a choice of matinee or evening show. It was a magic show of Kevin and Curuso. Very enjoyable. Tip: afternoon matinee less busy
