It was raining and some of the activities we had planned were scrapped so that we could get indoors. We decided to visit the showing of "Jerusalem." I did not love the film, but I did really appreciate how in the introduction they showed where all of the speakers were located. It helped me to be more observant of and... More

We see the Polar Express every year at this venue and never tire of it. Cost was $9/adult, $8/junior which was ages 2-12. We were in spot #1 in line and got some really good seats; in fact, they were the best we've ever been able to secure, so it was worth it getting there 40 minutes prior to start... More

Our family recently visited us from out of state. The Omni theater was one of the activities we enjoyed as part of celebrating Christmas in North Texas. All ages from 68 to 6 enjoyed seeing THE POLOR EXPRESS. Although we had reservations, we had a rather long wait and we were seated high in the upper level as there were... More

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.
