Foursquare Tips

  • If the movie starts at 3...it really starts at 3. No previews so get there on time!
  • The higher up you sit. The better!
  • Sit four or five rows from top...not near that box in the center (unless you want to hear the film reel).
  • Sit above the projector ...best seats!!
  • Get there early, sit as close to the center as you can without having the projection booth in your way. Sitting by the bottom will hurt your neck over time.
  • Awesome experience! Feels real! Love the theater, but if you have trouble climbing steps for health reasons, make sure to ask to use the 3rd floor entrance. Use the elevator to get to the third floor.
  • Technically an OMNIMAX theater as its humongous screen is dome shaped and angled 30 toward the audience. Originally meant for 45 min documentaries, so you may need some Advil for theatrical movies.
  • Movies in re huge screen
  • sit up high!
  • The seats are so uncomfortable but the experience is AMAZING
  • Sit in the center. Behind the huge box in the middle. Use the exit behind you if you need to get up during the film...stairs are dangerous going down once the lights go off
  • Over 10M people have seen an imax at the tuttleman theater since it opened in 1990!!
  • No cup holders on the seats.
