We're from Knoxville, TN & met family from Athens, AL there. We got to have a relaxed visit at a table in the lobby area, then saw the Hupback Whales show. I'd really be too nervous to go in a boat to see whales, so the IMAX film keeps me from completely missing that experience. In fact, it's better because... More

I always make it a point of taking the kids and its just as great for adults too. you'll find yourself reaching out and grabbing at things because they appear to be flying or swimming right by you. a lot of the shows are also educational like some of the underwater shows the it really is a experience your children...

My wife and I have been here several times. We went last week and watched a show about lemurs in Madagascar. The photography was great, as always. The price of the ticket is $9.95 US. it is conveniently located in downtown Chattanooga, near all the other attractions, the river, restaurants, and ice cream parlors. It is not far from the...

This is a very nice theater. The screen is 6 stories tall. I felt like I was part of the movie. It felt as though some of the animals were actually in my lap. It was amazing! We will absolutely go back!

We decided to have a family weekend with a total of 9 of us. I used a Partner Appreciation coupon to get a discount for a 3D show at the Imax in Chattanooga. It was well worth it! I pre-ordered our tickets to the Imax and also to the River Gorge Explorer. All I had to do was go pick... More

The IMAX is a great experience for the whole family. The screen is huge and the seating is great. You have to wait outside in the cold to buy tickets which can be annoying if the line is long. I printed coupons off the internet, but they were refused. The lady said that they were good only for the 45... More

This IMAX is a good one with a great screen and sound system. They also have great pop corn! It is within easy walking distance of most Chattanooga downtown attractions.

On December 27, we arrived before 1:30 pm to buy tickets for a 2:00 pm movie. The line for tickets was stretched around the side of the building. There was only one person selling tickets. We got our tickets between 2:05 and 2:10. The movie had already started and we had to sit on the front row. My wife got... More

November 29th at 1:00PM. From the beginning it was just an overall bad experience. First, we arrived with just a few minutes til the movie started. The ticket lady was neither happy nor friendly and just stood there counting money while we was the only people in line waiting out in the cold. I noticed she had just put in... More
