Not appropriate for children!
Oct 2021 • Family
All the employees were above and beyond kind, helpful and professional.
I was super disappointed to have taken my children into what I thought was a family friendly IMAX experience about Yellowstone. The preview for the James Bond film was abundantly inappropriate for a younger audience. In surround sound and on an enormous screen my 7 and 8 year olds were subject to rather extreme violence as my husband and I panicked to cover their eyes and talk over the horrific sounds as best we could as we were not near an exit. I fully understand it is my responsibility to ask before I take my child into the theater, but I also find it shocking anyone would think this an appropriate pairing for a film about Yellowstone National Park.
The film itself was ok, but also disappointing. There are so many wonders and so much history Yellowstone provides to be showcased on this amazing screen, and this one fell flat. As a side note, it also cursed, which again seemed strange for the purpose of the film.
This is a wonderful location, theater, and store full of amazing employees. I hope those in charge may reconsider the preview and main film and use their unique resources in a better way in the future to showcase Yellowstone in an impactful way.

Film should be updated and expanded.
Sep 2021 • Couples
We are staying in West Yellowstone and we thought it would be good to see an IMAX movie on Yellowstone. The theater is beautiful and there weren’t many people in attendance. The film only lasted 38 minutes. It was a good quality film but I felt it could’ve shown a lot more of the special treasures of Yellowstone. Perhaps it should be updated to show the facilities that are available and the main treasures of Yellowstone. This theater has a great area for shopping for clothes, Sweatshirts, souvenirs and also you can purchase ice cream drinks pop popcorn and snacks and you don’t even have to see the movie.

Great Theater
Sep 2021 • Couples
Great concessions! Popcorn, candy, ice cream, fountain & bottle drinks, souvenirs, etc. First run movies and documentaries on IMAX. We have been to hundreds of theaters and this one is definitely in the top 5.

Great facility - horrible 30+ year old Yellowstone film
Aug 2021
The only reason I'm giving two stars instead of one star is the great facility. It's clean, the seats are nice and the gift shop is probably one of the best of all of them. The popcorn was fresh.

The issue is that the major reason to visit is to see the Yellowstone film, which was clearly shot 30 years ago give or take. Much of it was out of focus - like it was filmed for a much smaller screen that it was being played on, the dialogue was terrible, the story was historically inaccurate (unless you want to believe that the US was somehow being benevolent by declaring Yellowstone the property of the US Government to "protect it" while simultaneously chasing the Indians off their land and into reservations).

The theater gets a poor review from me because they are knowingly continuing to profit off of a film that has long since seen better days and needs to be retired. Shoot a new one or just convert to showing only new movies!

A fun extra thing to do
Jun 2021
On our recent trip, we stayed in West Yellowstone, Montana. It was the cutest little town! And the IMAX theater was a nice break, and something different to do on an evening. Especially for the one in our family who doesn't love a constant nature/hiking only trip. It was nice to have somthing special for him to enjoy. We stayed at Kelly Inn and were able to just walk across the street. The theater wasn't crowded.

Watch Yellowstone’s 45-min. documentary
Jul 2021 • Family
This was the perfect thing to do before we entered Yellowstone. The movie plays every hour. We paid $4 more per person to get top row seats. & popcorn for each person. The seats were larger & leather. As for the movie, we were taught about the history, the science behind the geysers, & what to expect. My kids said they learned a lot. So did I.
As for the place itself, there is an amazing gift shop there. The staff really left a good impression on the entire experience. Loved talking to them.

Great experience at the IMAX!
Jun 2021 • Couples
We saw the IMAX movie about a beautiful depiction of the history of Yellowstone National Park. It was a different way to experience the park from a very comfortable air conditioned seat with delicious concessions. The theater also shows feature films. Prices are reasonable and the gift shop was the best I’ve ever seen!

Fun diversion to kill some time
Jun 2020 • Family
We arrived in town too late to go into Yellowstone for the day, so we decided to take our preschool age daughter to see this movie to introduce her to some of the things she would be seeing over the next couple days at Yellowstone. I was a little disappointed that the movie was pretty dated, but it was still not so bad. I wish it was a little cheaper, we made up for the price by visiting a couple of times for the $1 ice cream cone deal.

Disappointing Movie about Yellostone
Feb 2020
We thought the movie about Yellowstone would be good to see our first night in town. However, movie was sub-par. It reminded me of a movie I might have seen in elementary school back in the 70’s. It could/should have been better. Gift shop is nice but save your money and skip the movie.
