We just watched one movie due to limited time available, but I can say the quality is amazing both by the fact the content is up to date and also very well constructed. I would definitely visit again and watch all of them.

Functions start every 30 minutes. Goods programs, very good video and very good audio. It is right next to the Museum of Natural Science so you can visit both the same day.
