Avoid all but upper seats – My experience was by far the worst theater experience Ive had in my entire life. I saw Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which obviously was not filmed with IMAX presentation in mind. This IMAX theater is a dome design, which is not as good a design as the stadium design because the projection is optimized for only the top 3-5 rows of seats. I sat about a third of the way from the bottom, and the view gave me a big headache. The bottom of the picture is 10-20 times larger than the top. Also, the width of the screen requires close to 180-degree peripheral vision, and I had to constantly move my head to focus on different parts of the screen. The seats are also quite uncomfortable. Make sure you get in line at least an hour before the start to get a decent seat.
