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... read more

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

At night they show 1st Run movies, we saw Captain American, Civil War. Great sound and picture, not the largest Imax I've been to but it was much more than I expected in an out... More

For a rainy day activity or just to relax after a day of sightseeing, this is the perfect activity! Amazed at how big the gift store is! Buy movie tickets at box office inside front door. Browse around at large gift inventory. Sale items over on side by theater entrance. Saw Yellowstone movie and liked it. Go there for a... More

You have better option to spend your money than on the Yellowstone and National Park movies offered this summer. The story line is very basic, you know most of the info and the quality is not what we have enjoyed in the past. The staff at the gift shop was very busy talking to each other or working with inventory.... More
