A conventional Imax theatre. Somewhat hard and uncomfortable seats. Technology good. Staff not very alert. "Cousteau Secret Ocean 3D" from 2014 - the very best 3D Imax movie that we have seen. Totally amazing pictures with breath-taking resolution. We are keen scuba divers and were immensely impressed. "Wild Cats 3D" from 2015 - also amazing pictures, but a bit boring... More

Great 3-D effects, not sure if wheelchair persons could do this show. Sounds and visual parts were wonderful. Not too long--long just enough to keep you interested.

If you can see the movie Bayou, you must do it! It was very informative. It talks about the importance of the wetlands and has a very Vivid picture of the swamps and Hurricane Katrina. The theater itself was as good as any IMAX theater is. Relatively the same size and accomodations. Pinterest hair is always media so it's easy... More

Watched this with my 13 yr old son and we both enjoyed it. Very good message about preservation and the destruction caused by hurricane Katrina. I would recommend it if you want to burn up an hour. It was kind of pricy, I think $10 each. We did splurge on a large popcorn drink combo for $9, which my son... More

We used to love going to the IMAX when in NOLA. It's now the Entergy Giant Screen Theater. We walked in to check out the showings....staff is about as friendly as doorknobs. There isn't a big variety of shows, but we did get a ticket and saw 3D Secret Ocean which was pretty good. The 3D glasses worked well. We... More

It's just a standard Zoo/Aquarium IMAX theatre that plays the same 3 movies over and over and over again from the early 1990s.

We picked up the Audubon Experience Package that included all four activities. The zoo is located more uptown and the aquarium, insectarium, and imax are in the French Quarter. You could pull off all 4 events in 1 day, but I think most would be more enjoyable doing it in two days. Parking is free at the zoo. You will... More

We went to the showing of Hurricane. I thought it was going to be about hurricanes but it was more of an insight into the way the wetlands protect the city if well maintained. Really worth going to.bvery informative

This is a great location, here, you have the red cable car just below the IMAX Theatre and next to the Aquarium, River Ferry taking you to Mardi Gras, somewhat near the Collection (high end shopping stores) too. They have a number of options and different times. Some of the features will only show on Sat/Sun so if you really... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
