Good for out-of-towners, good picture and sound quality and some of the movies (which usually run about 30-45 min.) can be very breathtaking. However for the locals it is decent to go to about every 6 months. They do not change the movie selection out very often, and they usually have 2 movies to choose from, and possibly a 3rd... More

We enjoyed the National Park movie at this theater. The facility is completely handicap accessible and we easily mace it upstairs with my grandmother. The theater was clean, restrooms were clean, staff were polite and the temperature was good. We purchased some fun items for the kids in the gift shop.

I really enjoyed the IMAX showing of the national parks. It was very clear, and we had great seats. Recommended for a nice little outing in the Chattanooga area.

Not sure there is anything to compare to the image quality and sound resolution at an IMAX theater. The price is right and can be even better if you buy a year's pass. This is a great experience right in downtown Chattanooga, Plan to dine out then relax in an air conditioned, quiet space while enjoying the all encompassing 3D... More

Really enjoyed the National Parks with beautiful scenery! I recall years ago seeing IMAX movies with a lot more thrills such as going down a roller coaster, etc. This movie had some but not enough as it followed a group that were basically rock climbers. Very entertaining and different from a documentary on TV. Everyone should see an IMAX movie... More

The Imax is a great place to relax for a while during a hit day of being a tourist. The room was a comfortable temperature. The chairs are big & comfy. The screen is massive. The popcorn was good. We enjoyed the movie on America's National Parks.

Originally, we had planned to visit the Tennessee Aquarium, but at $29.95 for two people whose aquarium days are in the past, we decided to pass. Instead, we went to the IMAX Theatre at the aquarium property and saw the National Parks movie. We had intended to see it in our home town, but when the opportunity presented itself in... More

We saw the National Parks movie. My boys (9 and 6) were at first very skeptical and didn't want to go. They LOVED IT! The only problem was that they were so excited they kept wanting to ask questions. The National Parks movie was riveting and gorgeous in it's delivery. My only negative was that the surround sound was a... More

The theatre was really modern, clean and the staff very friendly. The show about the Parks was very interesting and of interest to everyone in our group from big to small. I noted the reviews about the sound being way too loud and would agree. However, our youngest granddaughter sat on my knee and slept thru the entire movie so... More

Visiting local attractions, we were offered discount tickets if we purchased several events. It was a good deal and since it was a relief to be out of the 100 degree heat, I agreed. We enjoyed the 3D National Parks show. This was one of the nicer IMAX theaters I have visited.
