  • No longer IMAX
  • Better seats are up high.
  • One of the favorite hangouts of the character Jamie in the book Punkzilla by Adam Rapp.
  • Go to the OMSI on a day with not so great weather outside and you will be sure to be entertained all day with an IMAX,great cafe,interactive displays,a planetarium,and indoor kids science playground.
  • Absolutely massive screen. Shame they don't do IMAX anymore. Sound is amazing with Dolby Atmos.
  • The only thing I didn't like is that seats are fixed
  • Giant screen. No beer.
  • Line up 15-30 minutes before showtime on busy Saturday afternoons.
  • Show Your Love For IMAX this Valentine's weekend! Check-in to IMAX Theatres between Feb 11th, 2011 and Feb 18th, 2011 using Foursquare or Twitter!
  • Fun old school experience
