Foursquare Tips

  • Enjoy the big screen and remember to silence your device! If youre a frequent cinema-goer, select Motorola devices can be programmed to turn off the ringer automatically with Smart Actions.
  • Avatar 3d - amazing experience
  • The theater snacks and drinks are crazy expensive. Eat before or after the movie. There's a McDonalds across from the theater, so you can grab a quick cheap bite and a drink there before the movie.
  • Bring your own 3D glasses they suck here
  • Seating is ASSIGNED! plan ahead (buy tix online at and don't worry about lining up before the movie because you're guaranteed your seats!
  • I love that we select seats in advance, no 3 mile long line
  • Quite the cluster fuck.
  • Honor our Navy veterans by donating $5 to help build the "Spirit of the American Navy" sculpture just down the road from here. Details:
  • And another line for popcorn and coke. The IMAX Chicago management must be stupid. Sorry no other words describe how I feel about this.
  • Print your tickets at home. The will call line is out the door!
  • Quality in the screen/sound, just that. Uncomfortable chairs, with little space and the ambient seems a lot outdated.
  • Get here early to make it through the box office before the show. Or you will be waiting awhile.
  • This is the best place in America to see a movie. The biggest screen you ever seen, complimented by speakers the size of cars.
  • Great viewing experience. Digital quality picture and sound.
  • This is a pretty crappy movie theatre.
  • Great sound system.
  • IMAX is huge!
  • Gotta love assigned seating for movies
  • NO BATHROOMS IN THE THEATER!! Get there early and go before the movie in the nearby bathrooms in the Navy Pier mall.
  • G row has the perfect view on the whole screen without making your neck hurt.
