I must confess that some of the historical/factual errors of Keith Merrell's Yellowstone IMAX movie's narration grates upon me after hearing it 100s of times! But in the end, I continue to recommend this movie to visitors as a tremendous overview of park past and present, of reenactment of pivotal times and of backcountry sites a lifetime of exploration would...

We saw the latest Star Wars movie. This is the way to see it. A huge screen with great sound. My Son said the admission price was four bucks less than what he paid to see it on a regular screen. They have a nice snack bar with anything you might be craving. The theater including the restroom was clean.

They show regular movies here at night, along with the Yellowstone one often during the day. Also a gift shop place. We all loved the Yellowstone movie, highly recommend. Also went here twice for the night time movie. Very reasonable.

We found this IMAX by chance. However, they were showing a movie about the history of the Yellowstone NP area which was a nice addition to having been there in person.

IMAX theatre was fun, a great screen with low key personnel. Great experience with a beautiful gift shop even though we are at the end of the season.

We saw two of the movies, Yellowstone and Lewis and Clark. They were both excellent, and seeing them on the BIG screen only enhanced the experience. I definitely would recommend the theater and the movies we saw.

The movie variety was nature oriented which makes sense. From the West Yellowstone NPS visitor center we picked up dollar off coupons for adults which made the price reasonable. They sell tix only 10 mins before the show and have concessions and an extensive gift shop. This was a good way to spend the morning when it was cold and... More

If you have time and want to slow down after many hikes and sightseeing, it could be a place to be. We watched a documentary, which was just ok. We didn't have time to watch a full length movie, but the theater is quite impressive with very large screen (almost true IMAX) and good sound system.
