Stop by for huge images and surround sound, exactly what makes IMAX so famous. The 210-seat Remember When Theater is part of the Imax Entertainment Complex too.

Hard to tell from this listing if it's actually for the IMAX theater experience, as there are lots of other things happening at the complex. This addresses only the IMAX experience. The line at the ticket box moved quickly and prices are reasonable, especially for locals and vets. Don't forget to ask for your discount. The IMAX theater has had... More

There were 2 different times on our movie ticket and of course we picked the wrong time and we were 15 minutes late. There are no previews so the movie starts at the time listed. When we got to our seats, the expensive VIP seats, someone was in our seats. So we ended up missing the first 20 minutes of... More

If you want a great, immersive movie experience, look no further. LOVE this theater. Super nice and very updated. VIP seats are pricy but VERY worth it! Highly recommend.

For the IMAX 4 people for the tickets in the recliner seats was$80 and by the time you add on dream nod and such I think we spent over $120 just on this experience. While the IMAX screen was unbelievable and loved the movie the only complaint that I had was the cost. Staff was wonderful. Facility was clean including... More

Lots to do here; Imax 3-D movies, regular movies, live music (at times), highly rated restaurant and some nice shops. All in one big place. We saw the National Park movie and enjoyed it a lot. It even showed some National Parks we had't been to. Great color and great 3-D effects. Very comfortable seats. Lots of things to do... More

Winter is great time to go because very few people. Seats were comfortable. The movie - NATIONAL PARKS was mediocre at best. It cost more than a feature length movie but was only 45 minutes long. It was poorly written and produced; it was not a documentary and not a story. The film jumped all over from park to park... More

Outstanding show! Very interactive with the audience and each band member played several instruments and sang. We heard songs by George Jones, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Tammy Wynette, Johnny Cash, Randy Travis, Marty Robbins, just to name a few. The show was 90 minutes and it flew by quickly, a must see!!! DON'T MISS IT!!!!

went to the theater complex to see a specific film. Enjoyable presentation, great sound, amazing picture quality on the screen. Before the film started, we got a chance to visit the various retailers within the building selling everything from military baseball caps to natural medicines to handmade quilts to grandfather clocks. Sit-down restaurant (American fare) exists within the building for... More
