    Get here early to make it through the box office before the show. Or you will be waiting awhile.

    This is the best place in America to see a movie. The biggest screen you ever seen, complimented by speakers the size of cars.

    Great viewing experience. Digital quality picture and sound.

    This is a pretty crappy movie theatre.

    A titanic screen, even among IMAX theaters. If you're at all interested in a movie that's playing here, go see it here.

    Great sound system.

    Gotta love assigned seating for movies

    The theater snacks and drinks are crazy expensive. Eat before or after the movie. There's a McDonalds across from the theater, so you can grab a quick cheap bite and a drink there before the movie.

    NO BATHROOMS IN THE THEATER!! Get there early and go before the movie in the nearby bathrooms in the Navy Pier mall.

    Honor our Navy veterans by donating $5 to help build the "Spirit of the American Navy" sculpture just down the road from here. Details:

    G row has the perfect view on the whole screen without making your neck hurt.

    Saw Avatar and Harry Potter here... Both beyond epic!

    Nice to pick your own seats, but the theatre is NOT clean at all! Yuck

    The parking at Navy Pier is atrocious. Be sure to plan in advance to arrive at least an hour ahead of whatever showtime you have.

    Movie Screening Viewers Beware! You will stand in line for hours! No one will tell you the theater is full. And please do not get upset CPD officers will TASER you at the request of IMAX staff! BEWARE

    Cup holders at foot-level in front of u at steep angle.

    Bathrooms not by the theater, almost $40 for 2 tickets, $25 flat fee parking, $3.50 for non-movie-sized milk duds.Garrett's and McDonalds close by. BYO_ super easy

    Enjoy the big screen and remember to silence your device! If you’re a frequent cinema-goer, select Motorola devices can be programmed to turn off the ringer automatically with Smart Actions.

    Best seats = up top

    The popcorn is awful. I've tried it a couple times to be sure and it's been bad every time. Lots of kernels and way too much salt.

    to jenny k, i love that too, comes in handy when you do it with a group

    Bring your own 3D glasses they suck here

    Be patient at concessions. This place always understaffs for crowded showings.

    Super 8! JJ Abrams & Steven Spielberg.

    And another line for popcorn and coke. The IMAX Chicago management must be stupid. Sorry no other words describe how I feel about this.

    Sascha Mehlhase · April 16, 2011

    They sold 4,000 Groupons for "Born to be Wild" which makes 8,000 guest. Unfortunately, they only have one ticket box open. This is stupid and badly organized - we are in line for more than an hour.

  • Aaron B.

    Print your tickets at home. The will call line is out the door!

    Harry Caray's Tavern is just across from IMAX. Great place to get a bite or cocktail before or after the show!

    Beth Heller · May 11, 2010
  • Matthew H.

    Seating is ASSIGNED! plan ahead (buy tix online at and don't worry about lining up before the movie because you're guaranteed your seats!

    I love that we select seats in advance, no 3 mile long line 
