Absolutely Spectacular
13 August 1999 | by (Edmonton,Alberta) – See all my reviews

Encounter in the third dimension is my first IMAX-3D film I've seen and it was great I loved Elvira's Song Haunted House and the 3-D was amazing. The story was interesting and the little robots were very cool everyone in the theatre even stayed for the credits. Go and see this movie soon!
