Group Concessions

Three Reasons Why You Should Order Group Concessions (for groups 20 or more):

  1. It's inexpensive
  2. It's fair for all students (Nobody feels left out and everyone gets the same thing)
  3. It's ready for you when you arrive (With larger groups, there is no guarantee that your group will be able to order concessions. Typically, there is only one person working concessions and it makes it difficult for everyone to purchase items with time constraints. Pre-ordered concessions are always first priority!)

Complete your IMAX Experience with a fresh popcorn and soda or hot dog lunch!

Popcorn Pack $3.50 ($6.50 Value) - MUST BE ORDERED 2 DAYS IN ADVANCE

  • Small Soda
