We visited Imax as a combination ticket with Marbles museum. The kids loved the 3D effects when it felt like you could reach right into the screen. They have nice educational clips during the week. There's a cafe and concession stand nearby to grab for...More

I absolutely love going to see blockbuster movies in IMAX. Most of the blockbuster features (Star Wars, Harry Potter, Marvel, DC, etc.) tend to be in 3-D and do not offer a 2-D option; however, they do not charge you more for the 3-D experience....More

We enjoy coming to this theater to see 3D movies. It's the greatest place for them. The seats are very comfortable with a high back to support your head. They sell water, soft drinks, beer and wine. They have popcorn and candy for sale also....More

This screen is the BEST - is the most clear and just seems "crisper" than the others. I love that they have an annual pass - It's a great way to support Marbles and it's a great value. (Just wish the pass holders got first...More

Not a very nice theater, but OK for watching a movie. The chairs reclined and had movable arm rests, they were also comfortable, but not fancy. The theater did not have fountain drinks, and 20 oz bottle of Coke was $3. One thing that aggravated...More
