We’ve enjoyed our annual pass to the IMAX. Really good shows and a well kept theatre. The pass is excellent value if you frequent downtown or live here. You don’t have to go very many times to break even on the cost of the pass.

We always check out the Imax when in Victoria. This time they had D-day showing (narrated by Tom Brokow) . An awesome presentation and very timely for Remembrance Day.

Very interesting place to see, when your on vacation, it's close to the marina and the parliment grounds, and it's a must see place.

I loved all of the exhibits, the Egyptians was amazing but my favorite exhibit was the history of man in British Columbia , awesome exhibits well documented and a real pleasure to observe.

A little expensive, but the seats are comfortable and the images so vivid. We enjoyed watching the 3D Oceans film, discovering the mysteries of the amazing creatures who inhabit our oceans. Total cost for two seniors was $21.50.More

Typical IMAX but very clean and well maintained. Tickets a bit pricey for less than an hour showing but the movies are always of a high quality.
