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...

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.
