Great screen. One of the biggest I have see. Great sound. They even have a little pre show to demonstrate the sound effects. Great price. $11 for IMAX for a summer blockbuster.

This theater is the best in North Caroline for viewing IMAX movies. It wasn't retrofitted for IMAX; it was BUILT for IMAX. It is also clean and well-run.

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
