“Fantastic! Surround Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

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!

“Been quite a while but nice theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

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

“Always fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

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!

“Love IMAX Films”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

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, which was great.

“unique experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

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 the action. Not like a 3-d at all, as you will find yourself swaying with the moves of planes or autos, like a passenger in the vehicle. I've seen Speed, Volcanoes, and tornadoes all are very intriguing.
