Saw Rock the Dome -Modern at the Hansen Dome Theatre. Was very impressed with the sound system, laser lights, and special effects. It was a very enjoyable evening out and want to see another one soon.

We enjoyed seeing in 3D the feature film about the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. We loved seeing it in the IMAX theatre.

Really nice, somewhat small but very educational location. The free portion extends on 2 floors and there is also an IMAX theater (which does cost money but not a lot).
