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

    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!

    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.

    Avatar 3D still selling out. Buy tickets online well in advance. Sit in top half of theater

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

    Avatar 3d - amazing experience

    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.

    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.

    Bring your own 3D glasses they suck here

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

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

    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.

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

    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

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

    Super 8! JJ Abrams & Steven Spielberg.

    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.
