Anyone see the new Harry Potter movie at the IMAX? Is it worth seeing on the big screen? Also, is it a nuisance to go to Udvar Hazy just to see a movie?

Parking at Udvar is $15. The two most recent IMAX films Ive seen (Megamind & How to Train Your Dragon) were great. The IMAX theater at Tyson's is nice and gives you more choices in show times.

BTW, Udvar is advertising free parking for the night showings. I think parking is free after 4 p.m.

I saw Batman: The Dark Knight at Udvar-Hazy and found it to be an amazing experience to watch it on that humongous screen. Parking was free but we probably arrived late in the afternoon as you found. We ate a late lunch to make the trip more worthwhile. There's no shortage of choices on or near Route 50.

I have never paid for parking for a commercial film at Udvar-Hazy in the evening. I agree that it's well worth it. I, too, saw Batman there, Tone --

Sounds like the perfect place to go Friday afternoon.

I find the screens in the multiplexes big enough, the IMAX screen is just overwhelming to me. Plus, you have to get in just the right seat for best effect, imo.
