  • A real treasure for a small town like Tallahassee. The planetarium is really great and the Imax theater is fabulous. We often get to see a real great Imax version of a movie at a price similar to a re...  more »

  • My wife and I love to come here. We respect the fact that the Challenger learning center charges reasonable prices for Imax movies. We feel that other movie theaters do not usually live up to there $+13 price tag. We use this opportunity to support this public location. Relatively clean building with friendly employees.
  • Take my daughter here all the time! She loves the planetarium!
  • 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.
  • (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.
