Very good and fun experience for the whole family, but a little expensive. The movies are short (15-20 mins at best) and the price of the ticket and the food or drinks is high. The staff was very attentive.

Don't miss the 4d film about the siege of Santo Domingo by Sir Francis Drake! Kids loved it. Very exciting and informational at the same time.The pirates movie was really fun as well. Well worth the money.

Cosy and nice cinema. They provide a good choice of the languages and let you try famous dominican mamajuana for free! By the way, be prepared and do not eat or drink too much BEFORE it.

This 4D cinema experience caters to all of your senses. It's not only a good educational too, but it's entertaining with the movement of the seats, mist of water simulating sea spray, and lots of good cannonball bangs! Great fun and definitely worth the visit!
