The theater is not overly big and has very comfortable reclining seats. To watch a movie on a screen this big is great! This was our second visit to see a movie here and I'm already planning my next visit.

Thank you for the excellent review! We completely agree with your tips. The best seating is high and to the center and it can't hurt to bring a light sweater. We hope to see you soon for another great IMAX experience. More

Seats are too close and they are too high. Ticket prices are too high. The theatre should have seats around the popcorn area while they are waiting to get into the movie.

Saw Interstellar at the Tropicana today. First thing I noticed was how shabby the theater looked, too bad. The big detractor from the movie was the sound quality. It seemed that volume was being used just because it could be, and to compensate for poor quality which never works. The result was ridiculous volume that distorted dialogue. I wish I'd... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent trip to the IMAX Theater at Tropicana. When it comes to the sound levels IMAX is trademarked to be "an experience so real you can feel it in your bones" as if you were actually in the movie. The dialogue getting lost in other sounds is something often said about... More

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
