  • (This review is really only for the IMAX part of this broader venue). Mid-sized IMAX screen, sufficient and comfortable seating, smallish concession stand. All in all, just the right size for our population. I've never been to a sold-out event here and, frankly, I often forget this is an option. That said, it's the best screen in the county - and if you're really looking for the larger-than-life experience, this screen yields a beautiful IMAX experience. It's no Warren Theaters IMAX - but then again - there's only one of those (in Wichita, not in NYC!).
  • Chaperoned my grandson's 3rd grade class trip. The IMAX part of the trip truly amazed all the kids. We saw the lemur movie and it was so awesome!!! I will be bringing my grandson and other grandchildren to IMAX during the summer break.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed the IMAX experience. No technical difficulties and the quality of both the projector and audio helped immerse you in the material. We saw beautiful planet and national parks in 3D would highly recommend both documentaries.
  • Beautiful theatre experience.Keeps you on the edge of your" seat.Highly recommend the learning center as a regular supplement to our students educational experience. All parents take notice!
  • Nice people, great learning place, awesome day trip
