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

We bought our Imax tickets as a combo with the Aquarium. It was very crowded as there were many many school groups on field trips. The place was jam-packed full of kids! However, the staff moved us to the front of the line and sat us in the top row, perfect seats. A very enjoyable time. We really appreciated not... More

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
