    IMAX at the Aquarium

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was extremely cold, and we did not have the clothing for it, so we got the streetcar down to the water front and went to the Aquarium. We got to the aquarium about 11 and Bob is thinking about lunch, but I've just had breakfast.

    So we bought a combination ticket, and go to the IMAX first and see a movie about dolphins. Bob says it is a very expensive movie - it's $6 each and takes about 40 minutes. It was mostly about wild dolphins. They talked about the dolphins relationship with humans, including a guy who visits with a wild dolphin every day in the Bahamas. They didn't emphasize the abuses that dolphins are subjected to in the dolphin swim places as much as I thought they might have done.

    I've been to several IMAX shows in different places. Generally, I think the IMAX is kind of a waste of money unless you want to sit down somewhere inside. I also think the shows are not appropriate (in length or content) for pre-school children.

    After we finished with the IMAX we entered the Aquarium proper and had lunch there.

    IMAX® features are shown 7 days a week except on Mardi Gras day and Christmas day.

    Hours: First showing daily 10:00 a.m. Showtimes may vary. Currently the four movies showing (Into the Deep, Wild Safari, Sharks and and Ocean Wonderland) are all in 3D

    Next to the Audoban aquarium is the IMAX theatre. When we visited there was a great movie about Lewis and Clarck showing.

    The movie was very interesting, but also had some great pictures. The fields full of buffalo is a scene you will not easy forget.
    There are combination tickets for the aquarium and the theatre.

    The IMAX Theater is part of the Audobon Society (they operate the Aquarium and the Zoo also). You can purchase a combined ticket for both the next door Aquarium and the theater at a discounted rate. For more information check out the website below.
