Sound slightly off, people like to talk, not very clean, and not conveniently located. No paper in the toilets so don't drink to much during the movie. Popcorn was good.

Well priced IMAX movie theater which has 3D capability. Be sure to check what movie is showing as they rotate several movies on the single screen each day. Have been several times.
