I didn't enjoy Rogue One in this theater, so I'm not sure why I tried again. But after seeing previews of Dunkirk, I imagined a panoramic screen would add to the experience. It did not. I had a great seat near the top of the...More

My husband and I watched Dunkirk, and we were both disappointed in this theater. You can clearly see the lines in the screen throughout the movie, which was distracting. The seats weren't comfortable at all, and didn't recline at all which was a major problem...More

We watched Dunkirk here... The picture quality of the IMAX is very poor. Not as crystal-clear as AMC's, and you can see the lines on the wall. The sound system is terrible as well. The seats are not too comfortable. So, this is not really...More

I've seen several movies here. The latest one, I saw, was Rouge One: A Star Wars Story. It's really awesome to see on the Omnimax screen. The best seats are near the top. They also have a large concession stand with a wide variety of...More

Christine G- We're glad you enjoyed "Rouge One" in its (recently ended) run in our IMAX dome-format theater. The wrap-around sight and sound experience is quite impressive. Come back to the Science Center again soon for the just-opened "Dream Big: Engineering Our World" or "Extreme...More

I purchased a membership so that it was more economical to take my 4 grandchildren to the exhibits and omnimax options. I had more tickets to use and took a couple friends to see the National Parks Show. It was a wonderful production, featuring a...More

It was a very cool experience in a theatre like that! It is however very steep to walk up. So one must be careful not to trip going up the stairs.
