Just saw ant man, overall theater is decent it is IMAX digital not true imax. Still much better picture then your regular screens but not on par with IMAX lincoln square. However how do you shut the sound off once the credits roll? So both scenes that set up the next movies had no sound and ruined that teasers. If... More

Great place to watch a movie. Saw Terminator movie in 3d which was cool. Only drawback was the theatre was freezing, so make sure you bring a sweater. Theatre right next to great restaurants and bars.

This movie was great. We got 3 D glasses. The movie was full of action that the 2 hours went by and not once were we bored or wanted to leave. At the end we were saying how glad we were that we decided to go. The scenes could be scary for children.

It is a great theatre and the 3D special effects and sound effects were beautiful. It is a professionally run operation and the directions were true and easy to understand. It was a wonderful experience and I will return soon

The IMAX theater in the Tropicana is really nice and convenient to all the restaurants and gambling. They usually offer newly released movies and a movie for the young-in's. It's certainly worth visiting and keeps you off the casino floor for a few hours saving you lots of money!

Saw Furious 7 with my teenagers. Theater is small so get in line at least 30 mins prior to showing if you want seats that are not up front. Ask for parking voucher when buying tickets. They sometimes give them out. Also check Tropicana website for ticket discount and use Trop card too. Be prepared for the loudness of IMAX.... More

Are amazing. The theater holds about 1,000 customers but the Imax theater can accommodate without anything being taken away from the theater experience. Some movies also have the 3-D experience and still others have both. This is where we go for the total IMAX experience.
