Saw Aquaman last night. Probably less than 20 people in 500 seat theater - why? Sound, screen, seats, staff, parking - all fantastic. People of MSP must be so mall-centric, they can’t see the gem In there backyard. Connected to the zoo -shows animal Movies...More

We enjoy the IMAX for highly anticipated movies. It’s less of a movie theater and more of an experience. There’s plenty of seating.

For the blockbuster movies (Dr Strange,Star Wars, Super Hero) with lots of special effects and action, this is the place to go see them. This is a huge screen (120' x 80') with a sound system without equal anywhere. It costs a little extra ($16.00/seniors...More

We went and watched a movie in 3D about trash in space. It was very interesting. My son loved it and was sad to see all the junk in space.

Neat place to watch movies if you want a different venue than your typical movie theater. This place is a little spendy. We do try to come here at least once or twice year for a special movie we want to watch.

We have a fairly decent home theater so we tend to stay home and watch movies on Blu Ray, even most 3d movies. However, every once in a while there is a movie that needs to be seen "big". The Hobbit, Guardians of the Galaxy...More

After reading the book, this movie was brilliant with its imagery and bringing the action scenes to life.

It is open on July 3rd for two shows Panda 3D at 1:30 n 12:30. Jurassic World is 2D at 1:30, 4:30, 3D 7:00 n 9:45pm. I recommend buying tickets ahead of time. Most of the time you will still be able to get tickets walking in.
