Any Imax is always fun, but the entryway and theater just seem a little grubby whenever we visit. They also don't seem to vary their showings a great deal.

Just received notification that Wells Fargo IMAX at Marbles is overhauling its Power Pass program. It was (and is until January 1st 2015) one of the best movie deals around. Starting Jan. 1st GONE is the Power Pass Preferred Member Line...probably one of the best perks of the program. Under the new program everyone is in the same line whether... More

IMAX theaters never disappoint. I went for a showing of the D-Day presentation. It was great and the movies was very well done. This IMAX is located at the Marbles Museum in Raleigh and is very nicely located.

We have been Power Pass holders for several years. For those not familiar with this option, it allows a member to see first run movies for $5 and there is a separate line that gets in first, so if it is a popular movie, you get first choice on the seating. The Power Pass had been $45/yr per person, but... More

IMAX is the only way to see a 3D movie. You really feel like you are immersed in the movie. Even 2D movies are better on the bigger screen. The Wells Fargo IMAX theatre recently underwent a remodeling so it is more comfortable than ever with great stadium seating arrangement so every seat is a great seat. They also allow... More

Huge screen, great sound. The food and drinks are reasonably priced and they offer a pretty good frequent visitor program. Just make sure you show up early, sitting in the front row or on the extreme sides doesn't offer a good view.

You haven't seen a movie until you've seen it on this screen. Its a bit more expensive in comparison to a regular theater but its well worth it if you can afford to splurge for the extra special movies. I love that they play blockbusters like The Avengers, Spider man, Star trek, etc...

The IMAX Theatre is amazing. It is a great place to see 3D movies, and they have a wide array of educational films, as well as new release movies. Love IT!
