Got in, got our snacks and kicked back to watch sharks in 3-D. We all enjoyed it. Even my little grandkids sat through the entire show

This was a great time. We saw the documentary on Humpback whales and this was so great. I remember when they were almost hunted to extinction and to hear that they are rebounding is wonderful. The theatre is well organized and well maintained. The 3d really makes it pop.

As IMAX theaters go, this one is pretty typical, but it provides a nice diversion from the nearby Audubon Aquarium. In fact, on a Saturday when the aquarium was quite busy the IMAX theater was not. TIP: buy your aquarium tickets at the IMAX and avoid the big lines outside the aquarium.

Very nice theater close to the riverwalk area. Combine with the giant fish tanks and you can fill up an entire rainy day. Try to purchase tickets in advance because the lines are brutal.

We saw Kenya: Animal Kingdom in 3D. It was a very interesting educational 40 minutes show. Buy the Audubon Experience ticket for the best value if you are interested in the other attractions zoo, aquarium, & insectarium.

This IMAX theatre shows family friend documentaries. Don't expect popular movies. The concessions are expensive. I think it's an attraction that people should bring their kids to at least once. We saw Kenya: Animal Kingdom. It was a great documentary about wild life in Kenya. The doc is about 40 minutes long which is long enough for children to sit.

It's $10 a person I believe and It was ok for the 40 min show. The only reason we went in was because it began to rain outside and so we made the most of the location and time frame. Not bad experience and for those who do not GET dizzy from viewing 3D images will enjoy the show. The... More

If we had just bought the IMAX experience alone and not with the Aquarium tickets, I would have been upset. We saw the Great White Shark. It was just OK. Nothing spectacular!

Shark great white 3 d movie was very educational. It wasn't scary , a few mild jumps! After watching this you have a better understanding of sharks. Very well done. Cokes & water are $3, too expensive. Popcorn is $3-$7. Movie lasts about 40 minutes. Nice large curved screen.
