The movie didn't really make use of the 360 setting or the 3D feature, and was a really basic recounting of the early American story. Suitable, maybe, for children. Though the 3D glasses were too big on me so I had to physically hold them to stop them from falling off - really annoying. Also, if you want to create... More

This was included in the Philadelphia pass, otherwise I don't know if we would have done it. My son hates 3D so he skipped it. The movie was ok, nothing phenomenal. It really only uses about 180 of its screens most of the time One of the screens on the side was not working and was very blurry. They should... More

This is a 20 minute 3-D theater in the round. Inexpensive and very appealing to kids especially if they have learned about American history. Our 4 and 8 year olds enjoyed it although it was a bit over the little one's head. at 20 minutes it is short and sweet.

This attraction was empty and we were the only ones to enter the film area. We soon found out why. This is a short film with some very flimsy 3D effects. It has a 360 style effect but you sit facing e front and that is where the film is shown. At one stage the rest of the 360 shows... More

It is always fun to sit in a 360 degree movie theater but this film did not take advantage of the 360 effects. And the themes of the film were generic, patriotic stuff. The city is full of so much history; why was the film not more informative?

We went to see this film about the history of the US because it was recommended by friends. We paid $5 (senior discount!) for a 15-minute film. The 360 degree screen was novel, but the 3D wasn't working the day we were there. The film itself was okay, but nothing extraordinary. The audience stands.There are a couple of short benches...

This was ok if in the area but not as the special trip I made to see it. If you do go be sure to smile as entering as your photo will be plastered on huge screen at the end of the presentation.

Cheesy 3D movie. Mostly an excuse to sell souvenirs. Even the kids were underwhelmed. Meh. Skipable.

Hate to give away their secret but your kids will love it. It is very reasonable. It teaches about the history of our country but the very best part is at the end everyone in the theater is in the pictures at the end.

Stick with the Visitor's Center that is part of the National Park Service. These folks are nice, but the gift shop is no different from all the others, and the film is a waste of time. The free films at NPS are better.
