Imax pulled out and moved on. Just as well as Imax is a big rip off. Theatre has latest in digital sound and projection with the largest screen in the dessert. However, a valley theatre arts group is taking over the space in 2017.

We had a good time. They are upgrading this theatre and are making it better. It was nice to escape the heat. Remember to were something warm and bring your own candy.

The Desert IMAX is a wonderful place to watch 3-D's movies. Comfortable seat with perfect leg room. Not to pricy.

This is a huge screen with the great sound system. It's a bit pricey though. Don't forget to watch 3-D movies, they are absolutely incredible.

Pricey, small, and not impressive (to me). I have to say, I did not see a 3D movie there. Seating is nice...plenty of parking available and it's free.

Not all movies are 3-D, but I have seen some very good nature and animal movies here. Parking is nearby and easy. Often they show movies that would be interesting to children as well as educational.
