“Royal BC IMAX Experience”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

This is the typical IMAX theater, perhaps with more than usual legroom. They often have double features. Good fun for families or anyone visiting the museum.

“Six story high movie screen”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

A wonderful experience even though I have been to Imax theaters in the past. They have several movies showing throughout the day and evening at various times. I saw "White Horses" It was very good.

“Great films on a gigantic screen”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is a far bigger screen than the original IMAXs. The selection of films that are shown is also very impressive and varied.

Dear Allan,
Thank you for your kind comments.
We certainly have the biggest indoor screen (61'H x 85'W (18.59m x 25.9m) in BC and amongst some of the biggest IMAX screens in the world.
We do look forward to hosting you again soon.
Kindest regards,

“Very comfortable theater with Imax screen”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Went with our 5-yr old grandchild and really enjoyed the experience. Again a great location and easy to get to. Parking available (somewhat expensive). As in any theater, snacks expensive. Very well organized as far as ticket purchase/line up are concerned.
