I've seen dozens of shows at the Omni..most recently Madagascar (a documentery about Lemurs NOT the animated movie) and it was an amazing experince as always. The theatre's domed screen that almost completely surrounds you (as you are practically laying down) is a visual and auditory experince like non other. For a cultural day combine a show here with the... More

This format is now relatively common all over these days, but still always a great experience for the senses.

I went as part of our field trip for summer camp. This was the highlight of being at the Museum. The theatre was really neat! I will say though, some of the younger kids were deathly afraid. Most of them really loved it though. We saw the movie about the lemurs of Madagascar. I would recommend it!

I had never been to a dome OMNI theater before... when I walked in I was immediately disoriented and started leaning to one side. Trying to get to my seat was a challenge because I was leaning away from the screen as it felt like I would fall if I straightened up. My wife laughed at me... it apparently didn't... More

If you have never done OMNI then this one will not disappoint. Be ready to be amazed. The theater is part of the Fort Worth Museum, anither favorite. Cafe/snackbar is expensive and has short hours.

Not sure when it was that we saw the latest 007 movie there but it was fantastic! Always fun to watch anything there! Watch your step though!

We saw 3 shows on Friday (not many people there on Fridays during the school year). Mummies, Railroads and Tornados! Not the exact titles. All 3 shows were exciting, informative and fun. Tornados has the most "Action". We love the Omni - go every time we are in town if possible. Great museum too!

Really has some neat movies with a huge screen. Parking has become harder to find though. Still a neat place to visit...

We are members of the FW museum and really enjoy the omni. I wish they'd switch the shows out a little more often because we tend to see them all and then have to wait for a new one, but other than that, it's great!

This is a dome IMAX theater. I actually prefer the flat IMAX screens; however, the dome is also nice. The sound system is state of the art. Since this is a dome theater, I suggest you sit higher up in the upper rows of seats than you would with a flat screen IMAX. We saw the film, Rocky Mountain Express,... More
