Wonderful film on Yellowstone

Comfortable seating with super surround sound. IMax movies for scenery are marvelous. If you can time it right, there is one film narrated by Robert Redford. Located in a building... read more

Comfortable theater and the visuals were breathtaking. My mother is deaf and it was perfect for her because everything was so beautiful and easy to follow. Loved it. Saw the Yellowstone movie.

My wife and I had the entire theater to ourselves. The screen is very large and sound quality was very good. Well worth seeing the nature movie on Yellowstone. Stay at the RV park and get discounted tickets.

Comfortable seating with super surround sound. IMax movies for scenery are marvelous. If you can time it right, there is one film narrated by Robert Redford. Located in a building with great selection of local tourist shopping. Discount for seniors. Great addition to trip to Yellowstone.

IMAX at its finest. If you can get into the movie without buying anything from the delightful gift store, please let me know how you did it. Saw a movie called Bears and it was exceptional. The seats are very comfortable. The back row costs 6$ more though I can't see it was much higher than where I sat on... More

The theatre itself is very nice, but it was expensive to get to see the Yellowstone film, and the film itself was a very dated affair -- looked like it was made in the 1990s. Lots of other films from which to select, though -- I just don't think it was all that great a film.

My family and I went to the IMAX in west Yellowstone. Theatre itself in much nicer than expected. Staff friendly and a great gift shop. However we went and watch the video Yellowstone and it cost us 33 buck for 4 people. However the show Yellowstone was a real let down. I highly recommend not spending your money to watch... More

Great rest stop after a long day touring through Yellowstone park. Did it on a whim and it was well worth our time. What we saw was constrained by what time we got there but was so impressed by the 1st one (National Parks) that we stayed for a second one (Yellowstone). The second one was an add-on ticket which...

We went to the Yellowstone IMAX Theatre during our stay in West Yellowstone. There are several shows running each day, but we chose the show on Yellowstone. It showed Yellowstone from a historical perspective, rather than a from a tour guide perspective, but was still worth seeing. It is a good attraction to do at night or during a rainy... More

We enjoyed watching a movie at this IMAX theater in West Yellowstone. There are several movies to choose from and I wanted to see the movie about the National Parks but we got there too late and ended up watching Tarzan. However, the seats were very comfortable and the popcorn was fresh. The people at the refreshment counter were very... More
