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

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent trip to The Imax Theater at Tropicana. We're sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the sound levels of the movie. Imax movies are trademarked for their powerful sound system. The end sound result is overall dictated by IMAX and the film studio through a designated system. Because we... 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!
