Imax Theater

IMAX Theatre is undoubtedly one of Navy Pier’s biggest attractions featuring Chicago’s largest flat movie screen soaring six stories. IMAX showcases both 2D and 3D films including documentaries and Hollywood blockbusters. IMAX is Believing. It’s an entertainment experience so real you feel it in your bones, so magical it takes you places you have never been; so all-encompassing you’re not just peeking through the window, but part of the action.
