Some inefficient teenagers run the business in a typical teenage fashion - nice and courteous, but unhelpful. I missed the show because of their poor explanations and their assumptions that everyone knows everything. They did refund me though.

It's a bit ridiculous but they told me it opens in 2019 again. The old one will be demolished and a new IMAX will be constructed in the same place.
