“amazing shows”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

went to the Imax film Festival March 3 and 4. The shows are so amazing and the film quality is unbelieveable. We loved it so much, we bought an annual pass. Mission Impossible Ghost Protocal is going to be playing soon! Can't miss that!

“Very Cool”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

The IMAX is a great way to spend an afternoon or evening. Reasonably priced tickets (especially if you buy multiple shows at one); great selection of interesting and entertaining shows; and a nice, clean, well-maintained and well-designed theater are all reasons to go.

The seating is designed so that you don't feel too crowded or squished next to the person beside you, and once the video starts, you forget about everything else and become totally immersed in the action!

Also worth mentioning are the friendly, incredibly hardworking staff. In particular, one younger fellow (I believe I heard him referred to as Jordan? - he was working around 5pm on Mar. 2nd) really stood out. He sold and served at the concession, greeted visitors and took tickets, introduced the show and cleaned the theater between movies. Obviously, he enjoys what he does and makes the whole IMAX experience that much better. Way to go!

Thank you for your kind comments.
We're are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your visit and the IMAX Experience.
We will be sure to pass along your complements of Jordon (if he hasn't seen them already :))
Jordan is definately a hardworker. It's staff members like Jordan that make a difference and we're very fortunate to have him our Guest Services Team.
Once again, Thank you, and I hope you have chance to visit again soon.
Kindest regards,
Paul Wild

“long wait and poor seat selection”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

After spending $10.50 each, we waited in line nearly as long as the video laster (about 45 minutes) and the only seats left when we got in were 2nd row from the front on the far right. Didn't really get our $$ worth.

Thank you for taking the time to report your concerns during your recent visit.
Please accept my apologies for the long lines you experienced and subsequent poor seating options once in the theatre.
We have recently experienced a very busy time with our Film Festival coming to an end and the 40th annual local promotion called Be A Tourist In Your Own Home Town of which the theatre participates in each year.
These two things combined made for a busier than normal week which caused some delays and busy theatre attendance.
That said, we would like to compensate you in a suitable manner for not receiving full value for your money and for not enjoying your IMAX experience to its fullest.
Please feel free to contact Susie Primrose (Ext. #3) or myself (Ext. #6) offline by calling toll free 1 877 480 4887 and we would be happy to make an arrangement with you.
Kindest regards,
Paul Wild

“Great Value For Great Entertainment”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

We love to go to the IMAX. We have season passes and we never miss a show. We just saw the Film Festival and all six shows were great. We always made a day of it see all the new shows and have the great tasting popcorn. The staff is so friendly they make you feel welcome from the time you buy your ticket until they say good night when you leave after the last show of the day. The feature movies they have are so great to see on the big screen. It is a great way to spend the day.
