I enjoy seeing shows at the I-Max and it seems I'm more blown away each time I go. I just hate the fact that I can't use the restroom or eat popcorn!!!

Love to go to the IMAX. We found this was great entertainment when we had company with vision difficulty. He was still able to see and enjoy this

What a great experience this theater is! There's nothing like watching an IMAX movie! My family loves going! There are usually new movies and plenty of one's on Texas and our history. Great place to visit!

If you have never seen a 3-D movie at the Bob Bullock IMAX then you are simply not leading a complete life yet! If educational is more your speed, then grab the kids and go. They have all kinds of films to meet anyone's tastes!

We've been to see Harry Potter and enjoyed ourselves. We realized though they have a make shift concession stand andaren't like a regular theater.
So we decided to go this weekend and see Batman. Rule number 1- buy your tickerts online. We did not and nowhere on their site, on their door, at the parking that cost $8 did it say sold out all shows. We get in line, which they moved us twice back and forth in and were there for 10 minutes (they are super slow) before someone asked if the show was sold out. After several I think so, they said yes and 1/2 the line left.

IMAX, train your people. I realize they may be volunteers for the museum but if you are going to run first run major films have some consideration for your customers.
We left, did not get out money back for 15 minutes of parking and am sure we won't be back soon.

You would think, especially with their proximity to UT, that this IMAX would balance the Texas educational presentations with popular mainstream movies. But unfortunately Austinites still have to drive to San Antonio or Houston in order to see the major marketed and anticipated IMAX movies. Sad for a city this size. An e-mail response from the Bullock IMAX said they can't arrange for the mainstream movies because they have to guarantee a certain number of showings, etc. Odd, they still get a few big regular movies, but never anything to violent. They censor anything too fun for fun's sake.

Pros: It's an IMAX!

Cons: Poorly managed.
