The theater is fantastic -- very clean in the lobby and in the theater itself. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Lots of seating -- with really no bad seats -- huge... More

We have been to this theatre several times although we need to drive 40 miles, to see special movies. It's worth the drive. Tonight we watched the new Star wars movie in 3D and it was great. Theatre and lobby are always clean and comfortable. You can buy tickets online.

We went to see the new Star Wars there, had a fantastic experience. The 3D for this movie was great on the big screen. I would go again!

We have been I max power pass members since they started the program. The program is not as good as it used to be but it is still the least expensive way to see first run movies in Raleigh. We see every move that shows at Imax in Raleigh. We get there early because we like seats 15 and 16... More

For picture and sound quality there's no better theater in Raleigh. We normally see our movies here, except went to see the Martian at another 3D theater since it didn't open at the imax; couldn't have been more disappointed. Saw it again 2 weeks later in imax 2D and it was so much better. Ticket prices are slightly more than... More

We don't live close by but whenever a 3D movie that my young grandchildren want to see we go to Wells Fargo Imax. The grandchildren love it and that makes it worth the drive. The adults that come along enjoy the movie as well. I definitely recommend the theatre.

nice to have an imax so close by. we got the power pass. couple of things though : when we bought the power pass, we thought the ticket price would be deducted from the pass. so if you are buying a pass for $50, you would be able to watch about 7 movies. But that is not to. The pass... More

Recently took the kids to see a movie at the Raleigh Imax. Great experience for all! The staff were very courteous and welcoming. Movie was fantastic. Easy parking just a half block away.

A group of five of us went to see Jurassic World the night before it came out, and were not disappointed. We showed up early to wait in line for good seats, and the staff asked the crowd trivia questions and gave away prizes. Also, this is one of the few theaters in the Triangle that has real Icees.
