Experiencing beautifully made visual and aural adventures in a room full of your fellow humans, all going through differing feelings and thoughts is quite humbling, can be almost a spiritual experience, and has changed me, for the better.

It's a brilliant place to park with them. You get into a cool theatre, they get to watch a cool movie. Okay maybe we enjoyed it a little too!

Shelly wanted to visit the butterfly gardens on this trip to Victoria. How fitting it was to watch this film in Imax splendor before we went to see the butterfly gardens. Because of the film, I was paying attention to looking for the metamorphic changes. A great film in a huge Imax presentation

I'm pleased to hear you enjoyed the Flight of the Butterflies film and that you were able to combine it with a visit to Butterfly Gardens - a perfect complement to the film and vice versa!

We hope you enjoyed the rest of your visit from Oregon and look forward to perhaps hosting you again on your next visit to Victoria.

Kindest regards,
Paul Wild

The IMAX show is worth every penny. Who knew? The film about Antarctica is phenomenal. The physical endurance of those men is unbelievable.

You're right - had the story in Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure not been true, it would almost be too hard to believe! There's a reason their experience has been billed as the greatest survival story of all time.
Thank you for visiting the theatre, enjoying the film and for leaving a review for others.

My husband was not keen on doing the IMAX, how ever once the film started he completely changed his mind. We saw Shackleton's Race to End of the Earth. It was the most moving Expedition you could i think of in that time frame. The expedition was from 1914-1916. It is 45 minutes and worth every second.

Excellent!
We are very pleased to learn that your husband enjoyed the IMAX experience and the Shackleton film after all. It's exciting and rewarding when we can exceed our customer expectations.
Another film I bet he would enjoy, that's currently on the schedule, is Rocky Mountain Express. So much so, that if he doesn't, contact me personally and I'll refund your admission.
Thank you for taking the time to post a review.
