Went to see three movies in 2 days during our time in Melbourne! Great White Shark, Universe, and then Spiderman 2. Both documentaries were really good, mainly for cinematography because the content wasn't too advanced. I really enjoyed all three, the sound and picture was...More

Was amazed at the size of the screen. Truly the world’s largest. A must see! They also offer discounts for students.

The screen is now the worlds largest with the demise of the Sydney imax. The premium seats in the back row are worth the extra cost if you want the recliner aspect and a guaranteed centre seat with great view.

Came to see 2001:ASO with the promise of laser projector, etc. While impressively big screen the film itself did not really lend itself to such a large format. I suppose it has a lot to do with the film stock used at the time, etc....More

We came here as a family and all really enjoyed the experience. We saw the Pandas documentary and we all loved it. It was only 45 minutes long, which was perfect for keeping the kids' attention. A great family night out.

A wonderful cinema experience! A movie in 3d and on such a large screen is mind blowing. I would love to go again and see the Panda documentary. Bonus is half price museum tickets when you purchase movie tickets.
