This is a former IMAX Dome theater, which no longer branded as an IMAX theater, but it shows the traditional educational IMAX movies you are accustomed to seeing advertised at museums around the country.

The $6 admission is separate from the Milwaukee Public Museum, but you would be remiss if you are only attending a movie without enjoying all that the museum has to offer.

Because of the domed screen, any movie that is not shot or modified to be projected onto a dome-shaped screen is going to have some distortion. The very top of the screen also will not have any image because of the source material. The distortion isn't super-noticeable, but it's there and will make itself known whenever something vertical is shown near the center of the image and you see it take a tilt across the shape of the screen.

I recommend sitting as far up the angled seating as you are able, as it will allow you to enjoy more of the projected image without craning your neck. The image quality during our presentation of 'Into America's Wild' (an IMAX educational movie) was not as sharp as I would have liked, but the sound quality was good.
