We enjoyed watching a movie at this IMAX theater in West Yellowstone. There are several movies to choose from and I wanted to see the movie about the National Parks but we got there too late and ended up watching Tarzan. However, the seats were very comfortable and the popcorn was fresh. The people at the refreshment counter were very... More

Sometimes you can get nature overload a great place to kick back and relax is watching a movie at the Yellowstone Imax in West Yellowstone. At night they show 1st Run movies, we saw Captain American, Civil War. Great sound and picture, not the largest Imax I've been to but it was much more than I expected in an out... More

For a rainy day activity or just to relax after a day of sightseeing, this is the perfect activity! Amazed at how big the gift store is! Buy movie tickets at box office inside front door. Browse around at large gift inventory. Sale items over on side by theater entrance. Saw Yellowstone movie and liked it. Go there for a... More

You have better option to spend your money than on the Yellowstone and National Park movies offered this summer. The story line is very basic, you know most of the info and the quality is not what we have enjoyed in the past. The staff at the gift shop was very busy talking to each other or working with inventory.... More

Nice theater with an amazing gift shop. We watched a movie about Yellowstone National Park. You truly feel as though you are right there with the movie characters. If possible make time to catch a movie here. Parking is easy. Seats are comfortable and this is a great way to watch a movie. Kids will love it.

We wanted to have a low key nighr after our busy day of hiking. The new chairs were nice and we enjoyed watching the movie on the IMax screen. It must be a favorite for the locals because many of them were there!

On a rainy day, we made our way to this IMAX theater to see the Yellowstone film. It was informative, entertaining and just the thing for a rainy day.

I must confess that some of the historical/factual errors of Keith Merrell's Yellowstone IMAX movie's narration grates upon me after hearing it 100s of times! But in the end, I continue to recommend this movie to visitors as a tremendous overview of park past and present, of reenactment of pivotal times and of backcountry sites a lifetime of exploration would...
