We were lucky, got here a little late to see Divergent in 3D. Luckily the theatre wasn't full so we got our glasses and grabbed a seat. Volume was reasonable and in surround sound it was good. The 3D feature was really good and clear and the seats were comfortable with drink holders built in so you didn't have to... More

A friend and I were a little tired of gambling so we took a break by watching a show at the IMAX. It was quite an experience (as are all IMAX theaters I have visited). The theater is not huge so you really get a great look at the screen. The surround sound is very life-like. And the seats -... More

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.
