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.

My husband and I went here for the first time to see Jurassic World, and we were pleased. I would strongly suggest arriving early because the line to get into the movie starts forming at least 30 minutes early. The theater itself is a well oiled machine. They have everything figured out, especially when it comes to handling large crowds.... More

State of the art cinema showing great selections. Not too busy on a Saturday / Sunday. Comfortable seats. $14 per adult for features, $3.50 for small popcorn - just goes to show, popcorn is overpriced everywhere in the world if it is served at the movies! Great afternoon out.

I have been to several different Imax theaters and this is the smallest I've been to. There weren't many people and the movie started as soon as we were seated.

I would really like to see a regular live-action film at this theatre. The screen is enormous. The seating is comfortable and spacious. We were afraid of getting a bad seat after the line we were behind, but it ended up that there weren't that many people there after all. We saw the Humpbacks 3D movie. It was good. The... More

Very upsetting that advance seating was no longer part of the power pass. Also rewording how customer saves money I somewhat deceiving. Ticket were $5 each and advance seating was a huge pull. Let's hope they change it because the only big business they are getting no are from the obvious sold out movies that are guaranteed to back big... More

Compared to other Imax theaters, this is the one you want to be in for Hollywood blockbusters and documentaries. Seating is great and almost no bad seats (except maybe the front ones). My family catches all the popular 3D movies, especially opening night.

This is the place to see 3-D movies! There is a little cafe to have a sandwich prior to, or after, the movie. These can be a little more costly, but they do have yearly passes (which I will probably do this year). It's located in downtown Raleigh, so lots of other things to do, see before or after a...
