Watched this movie in 3D on the discounted tickets and I must say the staff we encountered throughout were very friendly and helpful. We were informed of the Fast and Furious premier for the next day and even what seats were left for the screenings. The movie started right on time and since we were not very many in the... More

We were there for the premier of Magnificent 7 , it was great, they even had a small party for the people who came, food and drink also gave some free tickets for those who answered for the quiz contest and my wife won one also one of our friend. I really enjoyed the place it's really in good condition.

They don't have a huge variety of movies showing, but the hall is good and they have a lot of show times (sometimes all the show times show the same movie...which doesn't leave you with options) but apart from that it was good. When I went they had a short video (45 mins) playing before the movie as well, included... More

I was surprised to find an IMAX theatre in Nairobi. The screen is not as big as other IMAX theaters I have visited, and the sound is not as impressive, but it is much better than a movie theatre.

The screens are awesome not forgetting the HD quality, amazing. Makes watching movies here even better. The prices are reasonable and never been disappointed in watching a movie here.

Undoubtedly the best movie theater in Nairobi!!! The audio and graphics technology will definitely make you feel part of the movie. I just wish they had a wider selection of movies.

3D movie experience, nice lounge area to wait in. The caramel popcorn turned out to be so not so tasty,it was actually chocolate popcorn not for my palate. Onliine booking engine won't give you the different prices and timings but once you get there you discover them all.

The queues moved really slow. The ladies at the snack stand could learn to smile and be polite... They seemed overwhelmed. Have a better variety of snacks and the seats were comfortable. The sound was good. Its a good movie theatre but they need a variety of movies. The re-runs are too many. c'mon Imax, entertain Nairobi!

Went to see a movie with my wife and IMAX only had The Hobbit showing for the whole of Christmas and Boxing Day. Despite the very limited movie options, the 3D experience was okay. Thank God we hadn't seen the movie.
