This I-Max theater is very nice, clean and very reasonably priced. We saw a documentary about The Galapagos islands that was very educational and fun. A must see attraction in Chattanooga

I've been to my share of IMAX theaters and this was a really nice one. We watched in 3D which didn't make me sick like it normally does so that was a bonus! They have your standard popcorn, candy, soda concesssions.

specialty imax moves are predominantly played here. These imax moves are about 45 minutes long and are very informative. I think the the screen size is comparable to other imax theaters. Will go again.

We purchased the package that got us entry to the Aquarium as well as an IMAX movie for an additional $6 each. We saw the Galapagos 3D movie and I have to say we all enjoyed it. The theatre is nice, clean bathrooms, etc. The gift shop was reasonable and had some decent stuff. The popcorn was excellent, what little... More

We watched the Galapagos and found it very informative and wonderful in 3D. The theater was clean and the staff was nice. I also wished that we would have seen the Ice Age movie but time did not permit. It is a very nice add on to the aquarium experience!

While visiting the Aquarium exhibits, we added the additional $6 to go to the 3D Imax showing of the Galapagos. IT WAS WONDERFUL! I was initially concerned that the 3D effects would be cheesy or poorly done. Wrong! I was torn between loving the movie's content and the technology. Good stuff. Do it!

We saw the movie about the Galapagos Islands. My 7 year old thought the blue-footed boobies were hilarious. Mainly because of the word, "boobies," I think. The theater was very clean, the seats comfortable, and the staff excellent.

It was amazingly colorful and brilliant. My eyes were glued to the screen every minute. We saw the Galopagos islands, it was beautiful and interesting.

I scooted over here from the Aquarium's Oceans building for the 11 a.m. show--just me and one other couple here. Great film; I've always been fascinated by the Galapagos evolution, but was astonished that the film never mentioned Charles Darwin or the voyage of the Beagle!

We got our tickets with our aquarium tickets. Movie was very good, we saw about the Galapagos Islands. Im a bit of a geography nerd so I really enjoyed it. Chairs were comfortable and the theater was clean and even served refreshments and best yet was air conditioned!! A welcomed treat on a hot day! Beware all the kids again!!... More
