Watched Deadpool in Big screen. Good experience but if u watch 3d on Big screen probably you spend a minimum 30 dollars per person. It's a bit of walk from city. Prefer travelling by tram from Parliament station.

My daughter and I recently enjoyed the Under the sea film which was amazing! It felt like you were right there in the ocean with all those amazing sea creatures! My only gripe is the length of the movie, considering the cost...I really felt like it would have been more enjoyable if it just went a little longer.

We went to Imax to see Rogue One. We booked premier seats for much the same price as Gold Class at other cinemas. These are a row of recliner seats at the very back of the theatre and were not really comfortable. Because they are close to the next row forward, if you choose to recline, your feet touch the...

Went to see Fantastic Beasts - ever so glad that we did as the screen is huge and the projection amazing. We had booked the premier seats which have leg rests and recline, really worth oaying the extra money for those!

Passionate staff that work around the clock for big releases. This is now (temporarily) the biggest screen in the world. With laser projection (you need to see this to appreciate the quality) and Dolby Atmos - it can't get better. More leg room perhap

Located on the Rathdowne Street side of Carlton Gardens the IMAX has a seperate entrance to the museum. We walked to it from Lygon Street which took about 5 mins. We booked premium tickets, which gets you reclining seat in the back row. This was worth it as the action fills the screen. We saw a beautiful planet. This film... More

IMAX Melbourne - enter off Rathdowne Street. Carpark was reasonable at $16 for the day on a Sunday. Easy tram ride in and out town then we watched A Beautiful Planet in 3D which was amazing. Astronauts put it all on the table when they go into space. The sound is loud but we went for the experience; check!
