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

We have been to the omni several times. Its attached with the museum which allows for pretty much a full day between both. The movies are not very exceptional and are usually more historic or educational. What is unique is the screen itself in the way it stretches the dome giving you complete body sensation of being a part of... More

I love IMAX theatre, I have an issue with the dome idea. The dome stretches the scene in the movie to the point of spatial disorientation. I just saw Trains today- great movie it would have been great views if not for the stretching of the mountains to the point of being way out of focus. I have lived here... More

Nice IMAX experience, we saw the movie on trains and it was enlightening. the seats were comfortable and laid back so as not to injure your neck.

Imagine being surrounded by the scenery - side to side and above your head! The lead in clip of a helicopter ride over FW is awesome, if a bit dizzying. Shows and prices vary with day and time and what's showing. Terrific experience!

We watched Jerusalem. The movie is wonderful. I was worry about the tickets because I bought them online and misstyped the email addres, so I never got confirmation. However when I walked into MOS and up to kiosk, all I had to do was punch "print ticket" button and slide credit card that I used for purchase and I got... More

This is a great place to view some spectacular scenery. We saw the show Tornado Alley which had some really amazing footage. I could have sat there for hours. The screen surrounds you and the sound is incredible. Great place for families. You can make a day of it if you wanted to go through the whole complex. The cost... More
