I was curious to see a movie at an IMAX theatre because of all the technical visual advancements I had read about, so I went to the Esquire in Sacramento, planning to see whatever movie they happened to be showing, just to see if it was as technically visually stunning as I had read (it was), but it turns out I was shocked at the AUDIO quality of the IMAX scheme. Even the short IMAX intro movie shown before the feature sounded absolutely awesome. I hadn't heard that level of clarity at that volume until then. The sound is so highly detailed that you hear every single sound as though it is separate. Nothing gets lost in the mix. If I was king of the Earth, I'd plug my CD player into the IMAX theatre sound system and sit and listen to all may favorite music without watching any movies at all.

Imax theaters used to only be in museums. Since they went into more commercial development, more places like the esquire have sprung up. Its a very high tech theater, and to some movies, it adds a new dimension, other times, it just seems like the same film on a bigger screen with better sound. A good spot for a date

Assigned seating at an IMAX show makes it feel like it is a big event you are about to attend, but ensures you can sit with friends and family. The screen is so large, you feel quite insignificant and that you can't possibly see everything going on. The sound and seating is all comfortable and I would definitely go back. Our show was a bit delayed in starting, but the staff was quite friendly to keep everyone relaxed.

They might not have a large selection of movies, and might have selected times that the movies are shown. But it is a experience that everyone has to do at least once.. The Theatre has a great concessions stand but the main thing is how BIG the screen is, its beautiful.

This is a really fun idea. Watching movies that are REALLY REALLY BIG! Occasionally, they will get the pixar-style movies, and even more rare, the uber-geek fest action movies like the Matrix and Star Wars. Most often times through, the movies they show are Discovery-Channel or National Geographic Style. While it is really cool to watch a lion kill an antelope 2 stories tall, but it still vaguely reminds me of jr. high science class. But the location is great, they're in the Entertainment Book, and its a GREAT thing to do with kids...especially kids interested in science.

PROS: Novelty, location
CONS: Little pricey, and selection is slim
