Just near the exhibition centre. A great cinematic experience not to be missed. We saw the Jack Reacher movie.

The documentary was from 2004 and was not recorded or enhanced into IMAX format. The image was very pixelated and blurry. I could have watched a better quality... More

Just been to see a Harry Potter movie at IMAX and it was incredible! The detail and colours in IMAX are just so exciting. I wish I had gone sooner and will definitely be seeing more movies this way.

It was the first movie I've seen in 3D. I wore the 3D glasses over my regular glasses and there were a few times I found it hard to focus. I'm... More

Excellent venue, excellent friendly staff. The theatre was spotlessly clean and the staff only too happy to help with any questions.
