“Great family activity”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Saw Under the Sea this past Saturday, and really enjoyed the experience. Movie was a bit short, approx 40mins, but the sound, picture, and theater were great. Would def go back again. Loved watching my kids try and catch the 3d fish who were floating in front of them they whole movie.
The Trop has alot going on, very fun, exciting place. Am looking forward to going back.

The atmosphere was very good. Nice air flow and seating. Movie comes to life right before your face. Cordial staff. Nothing to dislike.

“Superman-Man of Steel”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

The IMAX Theatre is at the Tropicana Hotel which is about a 5-10 walk down the boardwalk from Bally's. Tropicana has a Cuban flair and very romantic. The Imax Theatre is upstairs. The room is spacious & has great sound effects. Man of Steel-5stars (and I just saw it in 2D;)

“Your Basic Imax Theater”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Love the big screens, although there are only two of them. Seats, sound, snacks, all just your basic movie theater fare, but enjoyable. Tropicana players (gamblers) get discounts to movies, but only after the movie has been out over two weeks. Perfect place to watch a movie if it's a rainy or cold beach day.
