Channelside IMAX theatre
Attraction details
Reviewed July 30, 2012

To preface this review; This used to be a legitimate IMAX theater. No signage has been removed or covered and no notices have been made visible to the public when purchasing tickets.

I walked up to the box-office and requested 2 IMAX tickets to an upcoming show. The IMAX sign was clearly displayed on the outdoor signage and the box office attendant made no comment otherwise. About 5 minutes into the film I realized that NO IMAX footage was being shown and this was just a plain 4x digital projector. I went to speak with the manager and once I mentioned the IMAX sign out front, he quickly refunded my ticket price. Until the sign is removed and all box office personal make it clear that this theater is no longer and IMAX theater they are deceptively selling over priced tickets.

AVOID AT ALL COST!

The reviewers that say it's too expensive are very correct. But it's worth it once in a while. :)

This place is ridiculously expensive and it's old and raggedy. I would rather by $10 popcorn at the Grove. It is dirty and smells old.
