Definitely something to see. You don't get to see movies like this very often so I highly recommend it. A great experience!

IMAX experience is not something I would rave about BUT I truly believe you should experience a good movie or documentary once in your life. Suck up the steep entry price for such a short experience, sit back and take in the movie. Now you can without bragging just say you have done it.

The Imax Theatre is a great experience. If you have time to spend in a theatre the shows there are to be recommended.

The kids & I watched "Bugs", a documentary about insects in the tropical rain forests.
What better way to explore insects then magnified on an imax screen.
We learned and we loved it.
A bit pricey maybe.

For the price, we felt this was rather like a 3 hour flight in the economy section of the plane. Seats are cramped, very cramped!

I informed them that my husband had a mobility problem (uses a walking stick) and asked for suitable seats that didn't require stairs. The ticketing girl was very helpful and gave us seats in the back row and told us there was a lift available. The problem is that they seated the people from the queue first and then took us up in the lift. This meant that to reach our seats in them middle of the row we had to negotiate past the already seated people. This was precarious!

I don't know that being in the centre of the row is that much of a viewing advantage. Next time I would certainly ask for either aisle seats or (as it was not a full house) somewhere where there were empty seats next to us.
