Great way to watch a movie. You feel like you're part of it. Screen is humongous! I actually have a headache just staring at that big screen lol. Surround sound is fantastic. Just an advice: you have to find a seat at the top middle. One time we ended up seating on the left side, 3 rows up. We had... More

Nice venue, not too big with comfortable seating and a great sound system. Have been here many times. I don't go to movies anymore unless it's here.

Enjoyed the few hours watching a cool movie (007) in the IMAX which broke me away from the casino for 2 1/2 hours. Did this a few times while in AC to mix it up. Would certainly recommend if it fits into your agenda and there's a good movie showing.

We watched Everest here and it wasn't a let down. Comfortable food and food available but limited choice. Tickets were a little pricey but as they say - when in Rome! Overall great experience, great for any bad weather days.

We were staying at The Tropicana for my son's birthday and one of the nights we went to see "Tomorrowland" with my 12 year old daughter and my 8 year old son and my wife and we just loved it, it had just the right amount of action, crisp sharp screen, amazing sound and popcorn, what most can you ask...

It's a nice big Imax, and a great place to relax and take a break from gambling, or a rainy afternoon. It can be crowded on summer weekends.

I was there for back to back movies on a week day. They were not busy. The seating was really good so that you could see the screen and not the head in front of you. I would have given it a five, but the sound is just way too loud. It is almost distorted because it is up too... More
