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. My only quibble is the price - $42 to see a movie is not something... 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 seen before and there was little new content (and some more recent information that wasn't... 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 fine. Prices for snacks looked quite expensive though not needed for such a short film!

After hearing all about the new space film at IMax on the radio, I booked tickets without doing further research. Hmmm ... over priced for this very, very short film. The facilities are OK, but the metal railings at the from of the cinema sit in front of the screen and disrupt the picture, so it was a bit weird.... More

Decided to watch 'Beauty & the Beast' at this theater since its available in 3D. Love the movie and the 3D effect makes it even more real.

We watched under the sea and the museum alive - David Attenborough doco. Loved the massive 3D screen. Was $30 for the 2 documentaries, which I thought was quiet well priced.
