Saw 2 films on the one day. The first with the kids, the second as a couple. Under the sea: Kids really enjoyed it. Although narrated by Jim Carey it wasn't comical. The huge screen really brought this 3D movie to life. The 3D glasses...More

If you really love film this cinema will become a favourite. It's not cheap but the full IMAX experience is hard to explain to those who don't appreciate cinema. It still runs IMAX 15/70 film as well as digital versions of movies. Make sure you...More

A massive theatre with a range of documentaries and popular movies that we absolutely loved visiting. We are from interstate and heard that this venue is a must - the largest imax in the world. We booked premium seats and enjoyed the comforts of the...More

Imax is something you have to experience. It's spectacular in every sense. The huge screen is supposed to replicate a person's viewing angle, the image is super crystal clear and further enhanced by the 3d experience. The movies are specifically filmed for this end in...More

The IMAX theatre is best reserved for well-rated 3D action movies. Reason being, it becomes a fairly pricey excursion for just any ol' movie. Because of the screen size, 3D movies really pop and you get the full glorious effect. Best to go that extra...More

This is an excellent theater with very convenient parking in the middle of Melbourne. Parking is discounted if you see a movie, ie at a $5 night rate for entry after 5pm and a $15 day rate. From other reviews it is, however, clear that...More

Whilst it is expensive, I'm really glad I booked premium seating. I was the only person in the row which made it very personal and comfortable. I saw Beauty and the Beast and it was nice to see it in 3D on the large screen....More

We have seen some fantastic IMAX films (after all, it is Canadian technology 😊), but I have to agree with other reviewers that 'The Search for Life in Space 3D' was underwhelming. There were moments of brilliance in this short film, but much has been...More

Went to see 3D Life in space. $20 for 40 min documentary. 3D was okay but not the best I've seen. The documentary was very underwhelming and ultimately disappointing. Could have been so much better. Don't rush out to see it. The cinema facilities are...More
