No matter how many times we go, we always enjoy ourselves at the Omni. We try to see at least two or three movies a year there. The Omni has screens surrounding the theatre and overhead. There are huge speakers behind the screens, which they show you prior to the start of the film. Star Trek retro is one of... More

Nice, clean theater. Curved screen affords a good experience. I would avoid if you are prone to motion sickness, or select a show with limited motion. I would like to see a wider variance of shows in a place like this. For example, today had two nature shows and one about Jerusalem. I would have liked something with a little... More

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...
