This is the best game in town when it comes to IMAX presentation. I've made the thirty minute drive to Channelside just to catch a few movies in IMAX (Spiderman 2).

This is a clean theater with excellent video, sound, and seating. Sound is usually very high fidelity and there have been times where I felt somewhat like the "Maxell Logo Guy"; holding onto my seat with both hands while my hair blows back toward the wall.

What makes this theater so attractive is that it's right smack in the middle of Channelside, which gives you access to some great restaurants (sushi by the port authority is not to be missed), bars, and clubspots. If you go for the evening, make sure you swing by Splitsville, a very trendy, upscale bowling alley.

Cinema Grade = B
