Imax Dome Theatre


"Thanks to the overwhelming visual and auditory stimulation, IMAX movies are events. They're more than movies, more than any home-theater experience can deliver."
                                                                    -- Tom Long, The Detroit News

The IMAX® Dome experience wraps sight and sound around you like an astounding "techno-blanket," and allows you to truly experience film. One doesn't just "watch" a movie in the IMAX® Dome Theatre; it's a revolutionary sensory celebration.
