The Charleston Imax Theater offers a unique experience, and continually offers a variety of shows. All showings are seen in a 3-D like format and it really is as if you are actually there in the movie. The theater offers great seating, and because of the size of the movie screen, it is hard to find a bad seat. Showings vary from normal movies offered in a 3-D format to made for Imax showings.

PROS: Fun and unique
CONS: None

IMAX is downtown next to the Aquarium. You have a beautiful view of the harbor before and after the shows. Every seat is a stadium seat with rocking backs and cupholders. The IMAX screen is several stories high and each seat is a pefect view! Parking is VERY limited however. Normally, we have to park in the garage across the street. It's not far but be aware that all parking on the street (Very limited) and in the garage in Charleston is at a price. Normally, it takes from $3 - $5 hours depending on how long or short the movie is. So, add at least $5 to your spending budget for the night/day. Food is expensive but they have a kiddie deal for the kids where kids popcorn and drink is not so terribly expensive.

PROS: Great seats, super 3 d movies
CONS: Parking is the pits.

Great 3-d movie attraction. comfortable stadium seating. gives you glasses to wear when you come in for 3-d movies. very unique experience for families. Giant movie screen to look at all movies shown. Concession stand and also a coffee and sandwich shop on one side. Can also overlook the water on the outside benches while waiting for the movie to start. Also offers educational 3-d movies that are not shown in regular movie theaters.

PROS: Great fun!
CONS: None!

I do not like the IMAX because of the small amount of movies they play. The movies they do play, I can watch them on the Discovery channel. They are also expensive.

PROS: Comfy seats
CONS: boring movies

IMAX Theater at Aquarium Wharf offers state-of-the-art IMAX technology.

It boasts 12,000 watts of digital surround sound and if that weren't impressive enough, it has the ultimate in stadium seating. In the specially-designed 422 leather seat auditorium, there isn't a bad seat to be found.

The screen is an amazing five stories high! That huge screen means they can show large format films. They show a
broad range of subjects (space exploration, the ocean, the environment, the arts, technology and geography) and more film studios are now also making a separate version of their fims in a special IMAX form. (Polar Express, Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, etc.)

IMAX Theater's state-of-the-art technology will give you an astounding film experience that's not to be missed.
