This screen is the BEST - is the most clear and just seems "crisper" than the others. I love that they have an annual pass - It's a great way to support Marbles and it's a great value. (Just wish the pass holders got first chance seating again) ;-) Prizes on concessions are reasonable as well. Staff is nice and... More

Not a very nice theater, but OK for watching a movie. The chairs reclined and had movable arm rests, they were also comfortable, but not fancy. The theater did not have fountain drinks, and 20 oz bottle of Coke was $3. One thing that aggravated me is that it is part of the Marbles Children's Museum complex, and directly attached... More

The Imax Theatre is Raleigh is a really great facility. You can go to that on its own or combine it with a visit to Marbles Museum. There is a concession stand that sells the usual movie type snacks. The prices seemed a little less than the typical theater prices too. I went to see a Documentary film but they... More

Though the 3D experience is available in local theaters, we specifically drove to downtown Raleigh for the original Imax experience in the area. It was worth the drive. The theater is fantastic -- very clean in the lobby and in the theater itself. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Lots of seating -- with really no bad seats -- huge... More

We have been to this theatre several times although we need to drive 40 miles, to see special movies. It's worth the drive. Tonight we watched the new Star wars movie in 3D and it was great. Theatre and lobby are always clean and comfortable. You can buy tickets online.

We went to see the new Star Wars there, had a fantastic experience. The 3D for this movie was great on the big screen. I would go again!

We have been I max power pass members since they started the program. The program is not as good as it used to be but it is still the least expensive way to see first run movies in Raleigh. We see every move that shows at Imax in Raleigh. We get there early because we like seats 15 and 16... More

For picture and sound quality there's no better theater in Raleigh. We normally see our movies here, except went to see the Martian at another 3D theater since it didn't open at the imax; couldn't have been more disappointed. Saw it again 2 weeks later in imax 2D and it was so much better. Ticket prices are slightly more than... More

We don't live close by but whenever a 3D movie that my young grandchildren want to see we go to Wells Fargo Imax. The grandchildren love it and that makes it worth the drive. The adults that come along enjoy the movie as well. I definitely recommend the theatre.
