We arrived back in west Yellowstone very tired and cold one evening- it was end of end of July!- and decided to watch the iMax movie about Yellowstone. The theatre shows a variety of interesting movies so best to check times if you only want to go once. The photography in the one on the history of Yellowstone is outstanding... More

Definitely enjoyed the Yellowstone movie at the theater. Employees are nice, The movie gives an overview of Yellowstone and its history. Only an hour long...could have been longer and told more. Very enjoyable. The rest of the place has every tshirt, magnet, post card, piece of tourist stuff you could ever want.

This Imax theater was across the street from my hotel in West Yellowstone, MT. We went there for the movie, YELLOWSTONE, It is now called "Yellowstone Giant Screen" on their website but while we were there it still had the Yellowstone Imax sign, It is not the totally wrap around screen that they have in Boston's Museum of Science, but...

The movie is short and really doesn't contribute much to one's knowledge level. It's not a bad thing to do if you don't have anything else to do, but I definitely wouldn't make a point of going.

They screen 3 documentaries of about 40 mins each. It's not to be missed. The theatre is located in the Yellowstone trading store.

We saw the Yellowstone show and they offer a discount if you see the other shows. The Yellowstone move was informative and beautiful. If you plan to go, look for the discount coupons at your hotel to save a dollar per person. There is a reduced fee for seniors and children. Nice staff.

Good overview of park and something to do on a rainy evening. They only start selling tickets 10 minutes before show time, so do not bother showing up much earlier. 50 cent cones in the lobby seemed to be very popular.

Who wouldn't want to see an IMAX about the most amazing place they've just visited? We saw a movie about the history of Yellowstone and visited the gift shop afterwards which was great. Lots of Huckleberry items and cute moose clothes for kids!

Saw a first release movie (which is a different review) but was hard to watch in spots because the size of the screen made the movie blurry. The gift shop area maybe the largest and most diverse in the area. Staff was friendly and nice. Popcorn and drinks of course...you are at the movies.

A great way to learn about the History of Yellowstone Park, its geography, animals and human experiences. Much like the Grand Canyon Imax, this is very helpful and interesting. shot really well and on such a big screen it really captures just how amazing the park is, even if you have been in Yellowstone or will never go.
