I was very dissapointed. Being a non-French speaker this was just a waste of time. The film and the big schreen itself was cool, but when my children and I did not understand a thing, it took away the pleasure. When purchasing the tickets at...More

First experience at the Geode last weekend. I saw America's Musical Journey. Journey is narrated by Aloe Blacc. The best effects come from the wide open views, LA, NYC, Chicago in this case. The advantages of 180° projection will be better with large landscapes.

Nice construction, it is located inside Villette's Park and very close to Science and Industry City. There is also a shopping mall near to it and some place to eat.
