Wortham IMAX - Houston Museum of Natural Science

5555 Hermann Park Dr.
Houston, TX 77030
This IMAX-only theater inside the Museum of Natural Science attracts crowds of families and schoolkids. The films are generally stunningly shot nature documentaries; tickets are slightly more expensive (for non-members) than regular movie tickets, and will not get you admission to the rest of the museum. There's a McDonald's across from the theater entrance and candy available in the gift shop.
