The Imax theatre is off of the souvenier shop. It cost $9 for an adult. There was the opportunity to take drinks, popcorn, and candy into the movie. When the movie on Yellowstone started, we thought we were in the wrong one, as they showed a preview of the Alaska movie first. The Yellowstone movie was very enjoyable, with lots... More

Always a fan of the IMAX concept as a prelude to a big visit, but was slightly disappointed that the Yellowstone movie had rather more indulgent Disney story to the park than the geo-thermal goings on and wildlife. Ho-hum, go along anyway.....

The theater had a great gift shop, which was unexpected. The film Yellowstone was fantastic. I enjoyed learning the history as well as the scenery.

IMAX theatres are pretty much the same the world over. The quality of the films is what sets them apart. The Yellowstone movie gave a good overview and a literal overview which helicopter shots you will never see yourself. Stop in here before entering the park to see what you'll miss.

We needed a break from the Yellowstone crowds so we saw a movie at the theatre. Nice giftshop, pleasant staff, and clean uncrowded theatre.

We saw "Yellowstone" before we went to the park the next day. It was a good choice for us as this was our first visit to the park. There are also other Imax shows as well. It's a nice setting and all of the staff members we encountered were both friendly and seemed to be having fun.

Ask for a discount coupon to the IMAX at your hotel. We stayed at the Stagecoach Inn, and they were readily available. The cost was reduced from $18 per person (June 29, 2013) to $16. Not a huge discount, but worth finding the coupon. The IMAX gives you a stunning overview of the park's history, geology and wildlife. It's a... More
