At six stories tall and 82-feet wide, the screen at Grand Canyon Imax Theater is nearly as big as the canyon itself. Start a Natural Wonder adventure in this massive 487-person theater that’s been showing “Grand Canyon—The Movie” 12 times a day, 365 days a year since it first opened. The 34-minute show gives travelers an up-close look at the canyon, as well as a trip through its history and incredible aerial views.
After catching a film, visitors can wander the visitors center and load up on Grand Canyon gear, snacks and park passes before heading out to explore the real life canyon.
The Imax Theater is located at the South Rim entrance of the Grand Canyon at 450 Arizona 64 in Tusayan. It’s open daily from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m. Tickets cost $13.72 for adults over 11 and kid 6 to 10 get in for $10.42. Children under 5 are free with an adult ticket.
