Accenture IMAX Dome Theatre
The idea is super cool but it is not comfortable at all for anyone who is tall. Seats do not recline. I felt like I was missing what was going on in the movie on the sides, I could only focus on the center of the screen because the picture is so much in your face. Might be cool for a celestial experience, I'd pass on movies though.
KARI was the onsite manager today and they made the BEST experience for my child. My child was scared about the dark and loud part of the theatre, and KARI tried everything in their power to comfort, help my child understand, and create the ultimate experience. Kari has mounds of patience! This is a great reason to trust the staff here. They really care about making Science fun. Thank you so much KARI!.you are generous and so kind!
Awesome sound! BUT the screen is in your face! The sides are distorted bc the screen is curved and the movie is not made to fit. Plus you are constantly having to turn your head to see all of the scene. First and last IMAX movie. Plus no concession stand and food and drink are not permitted
The staff were friendly, faculty was super clean, and the sound was awesome. However. I saw Jaws here, my favorite movie, and it was... not enjoyable. As many have noted, the screen seems very in-your-face, and if the movie is not made for IMAX, the distortion around the edges of the screen can be highly distracting. The seating isn't terribly comfortable, very little leg room and non-reclining chairs. Wish having a snack was allowed. I might come see something here if it's space-related and/or made for IMAX, but otherwise I left Jaws feeling a little seasick.
Watched one of the Discovery Center educational movies, "Dinosaurs in Antarctica". Nice experience, impressive sound, cool immersion through the spherical screen. However, the large screen covers such a huge space that you have to crane your head around to see the edges. Also some technical details that probably need to be worked out as the picture sometimes got distorted or out of focus slightly...
