Movie about the history of the Grand Canyon. Impressive images with the Imax technology. We were only a dozen in the theater at 6 pm. This may be a consequence of the price. We paid 68$ for 5 adults for a 40 min session.

Great value for money, kids loved it, nice story about the Canyon. A little cold with airco, but we took a blanket just in case. Kids loved it more than the helicopter ride, no waiting times!

We went to see this movie after seeing the Grand Canyon in person, and thoroughly enjoyed seeing the amazing scenery of the river and different sides of the Canyon walls. There is a store and gift shop to wander through, and some displays of historical...More

Ignore the negative reviews that people are leaving for this experience. It is amazing to think of why they would put negative reviews - this is a National Geographic production about the Grand Canyon that includes some history on the canyon and a lot about...More

This movie is definitely worth the time. It is 35 minutes and you learn a lot about the history of the canyon. Fantastic water shots and aerial photography.

It was comfortable and safe to be in the theater rather than actually in a helicopter with spectacular views of the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River.

We watched the movie on the Grand Canyon. Thanks to the IMAX experience you get to enjoy the Grand Canyon in an beautiful and exciting way, like flying or rafting on the Colorado river.

This “movie” was unwatchable. The height of boring......there are no hidden secrets. The only thing that should stay hidden is the movie. Don’t waste your time. $40 for 3 of us and it was an absolute waste. Wait for a better IMAX production.More

The movie was poorly made, and no refund was offered when the movie failed to be shown to the end because of technical difficulties.

Everyone in our family is an IMAX movie fan so we all enjoyed this Grand Canyon movie. It gave some interesting history lessons as well as the experience of the first explorers to boat down the Colorado through the Canyon. Beautiful aerial views as well....More
