We went and watched a movie in 3D about trash in space. It was very interesting. My son loved it and was sad to see all the junk in space.

Neat place to watch movies if you want a different venue than your typical movie theater. This place is a little spendy. We do try to come here at least once or twice year for a special movie we want to watch.

The theater was like any other Imax. We saw the Lemur's of Madagascar in 3D which was done very well although some of the stories theories seemed a little far fetched. Overall, not bad at all
