“Not amused”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Duke Energy should stick to what they think they know. Supplying power to their customers. Children are easily amused, but grownups know Duke is about money and lots of it.

“Love Omnimax!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

This is always a joy to go to. The films are well done and a treat for guests who have not experienced Omnimax.

“Spectacular Architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

The colossal, 1930s architecture alone is well worth the visit. For those classic film lovers out there, think "Metropolis" meets "Union Station." Bring a camera!

I visited the Center to see a film at the Omnimax, which is much like an IMAX, except the screen curves around the audience like a partial globe, immersing viewers in the experience. A lot of fun, and a fun, novel experience.

“Old radio”

Is nice to see that the city is taking pride in the art deco treasures they have, I have never seeing a train station so great and feel a litte sad that those days of traveling are gone........

“Pompeii Exhibit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

The Museum/Terminal is one of the nation's most outstanding example of Art Deco architecture. Beautifully restored and maintained, it is always fascinating to examine some new details on every visit. They also work at attracting top exhibits and do an excellent job in hosting these events. We most recently enjoyed the Pompeii exhibit that was truly fascinating.
