Plan on being at the IMAX Theater 15 – 20 minutes prior to the start time of the show you plan on seeing. If you purchase your tickets in advance you can proceed directly to the IMAX Auditorium doors.
We encourage you to plan ahead before visiting the IMAX. Since we are located in the heart of downtown Sacramento there are often times many events going on that can slow down commuter travel.  Downtown Sacramento has current information on road conditions. In addition, there may be detours due to special events. Visit Downtown Sacramento at godowntownsac.com for updated special event detour information.
If we expect larger than normal amounts of guests due to the popularity of a particular film we will alert guests via social media, Facebook & Twitter.

We offer a full slate of traditional concession items. We also have specialty items like pizza, chicken strips, gourmet sausages, White Castle burgers and jumbo pretzels.

Yes & no. Often times we are limited on the amount of trailers we show.

Do you show films in 2D or 3D?
We show both styles so please pay close attention to the tickets you are purchasing as the show and show time will specifically say 3D if the presentation you are seeing will be presented in the format.

I purchased IMAX tickets in advance but I’ve not received an email with my tickets?
If you purchased your ticket in advance but have not received your electronic tickets via email, please check your spam or junk folder.  If they are not there, then contact us at our theater box office (916-443-4629 x0) during normal operating hours and we can print your tickets for you, even the day of the show.
