With the new upgrade on the larger screen, technology advanced laser projector and better sound system this IMAX theater is a must visit whilst in Chattanooga. The movies are crisp with pure blacks and vivid colors. They also have a 40$ year pass so you may watch any movie (documentry) as many times as you like. Great deal for such... More

My teenaged daughter, my mother, and I went to see "Jeruselem" in 3D. Seeing the movie was probably as close as possible to actually being there. We also found some cute things in the adorable little gift shop.

We love to visit the IMAX theatre. It is one of our favorite stops in Chattanooga. This visit we saw JERUSALEM by National Geographic. This was an outstanding production. It offered direct views of the city of Jersusalem (at well as some surrounding cities) and depicted the lives of three girls: one Christian, one Muslim, and one Jewish person and... More

We visited the IMAX as part of our Tennessee Aquarium package. Tickets are discounted if you combine them. We saw Jerusalem in 3D. Very good short documentary.

I don't know if it was because we were tired from the aquarium or if it was just not interesting but I along with my kids slept through most of the humpback whales show. If these tickets did not come with my package I had received with my hotel.room, I would not have watched this.

Great place to go and see the IMAX series they have. They frequently update the IMAX content on a regular basis so you don't have to watch the same thing every time you go.

This was a great way to spend an hour. We enjoyed the show and the gift shop. Location is great for going to other events close by as well. The humpback movie was really beautiful.

I went to the IMAX movie theater to watch my favorite movie "Humpback Whales" and I really enjoyed it. The cashier at the box office was very nice and the usher that gave my mom and I our 3D glasses was nice and he told us to go up the elevator because the movie was almost starting and the elevator...

We went here on a combination ticket which included the Aquarium, the River Gorge Explorer and the IMAX Theatre. You have to select your movie when you buy the tickets, but I checked and you can leave and then re-enter the Aquarium in case you aren't progressing as fast as you thought you would (just make sure you get back...

This imax is for the aquarium whale movie. It was awsome, a must see for only $6.00 and amazing seats up top is the best!
