My family saw the show "Dream Big" during spring break. The lobby was overcrowded with a field trip of middle schoolers. However the staff was still functioning and helpful. They allowed other visitors to seat first and at the top, while the school group sat at the bottom. The seats were comfortable and the theater was huge with plenty of... More

The Imax Theater was presenting an undersea adventure movie in 3D. We were glued to the movie. The quality of the production was a great treat. Unbelievable, how close the cameras can get now. I was pleased how informative the film was. Great family outing.

We showed up early and it was calm and we browsed the gift store. Then, all of a sudden, explosion of people forming a giant line to get into theater. Also, the concession stand only had 2 people working it and no line control. The line was coming in from two directions and customers were getting testy with each other.... More

Massive IMAX screen feels like you are inside the movie set. Located right across the street from the Tennessee Aquarium. We very much enjoyed going

We really enjoyed the 3D IMAX. The movie was very informative and insightful. The theater was a great size. My wife and I purchased the tickets as part of our trip to the Aquarium.

This is my local IMAX. It is a really nice facility and the staff are always nice. The price is high because you pay $10 for a 45 min movie. But its still a cool experience. We just saw the new movie Secret Ocean today and really enjoyed it. It showed and taught about some more rare and unknown ocean... More

Our group purchased combination tickets at Ruby Falls. After visiting the Aquarium (which was very enjoyable) our last stop was the IMAX (26 Sept). The front door ticket office agent at the IMAX would not honor the tickets. We were told It was some issue to the effect Ruby Fall's issued them wrong. " They do not know what they... More

Purchased tickets for this as part of the Tennessee Aquarium package. Just a few blocks away. Wonderful movie on the National Parks. Comfy seats. You wear special glasses for this, they do fit over your own glasses. Before the movie starts you will notice a big black area in one lens but don't worry because once the actual movie starts...
