Choose the right film,we saw Gravity there in 3D and I felt I was in space with them - even to the extent I felt a wee bit queasy (they tell you to close your eyes and it goes). It was fantastic. Months later we went to see Tom Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow and I felt it was a... More

This is not an arts cinema and does not pretend to be, though it does have the standard range of interesting IMAX features such as Space Shuttle and Deep Sea science films. However, I use it for the likes of big Hollywood action films, this year including Godzilla, 300 Empire, Robocop 2014, Spider-Man 2, Edge of Tomorrow, and Maleficent. The... More

Easy access, plenty parking, huge screen and amazing sound. Since Cineworld took over they have made many improvements,the best for us is being able to select your seats when booking online, unlike the old way of having to arrive early and queue to hopefully get a descent seat.

Taking the family here is an amazing experience. You think you have seen 3d but this is exceptional. If you visit the science centre which is another fab adventure your ticket also admits you in to the iMax. The train in to the science centre is the easiest way to get there. You pass the new hydro built for the... More

Booked a ticket for the feature film along with entry to the Science centre next door, and got a good deal. We had never been to an imax before, and it was quite an experience! Toilets were a bit shabby, but you don't tend to spend much time there!

On the 15th March I went to see Hubble 3D with one of my friends at the IMAX during a visit to Glasgow Science Centre. We could have booked in through GSC, however as I am a Cineworld Card holder (who has been told on many occasions at the IMAX and at Renfrew Street that 45 minute films are free)... More

We've just been to see Gravity here in Glorious Imax 3d & it was just incredible. This cinema was made for a film like this so if you get the chance, take it. Seems expensive but it's really only a few pounds more than a regular cinema but it's just WOW!

I AMA. Frequent visitor to the IMAX in Glasgow, it is by far the best cinema experience the city has to offer. The screen is the largest with excellent picture and sound quality. The whole experience is very immersive and one can really loose themselves in the film!

I visited the Glasgow IMAX for the first time since it was taken over by Cineworld, having read from reviews of "Gravity" that the movie lended itself to 3D IMAX. Easy access, situated next to the Science Centre with plenty of car parking. The cinema is comfortable, a Starbucks in the foyer with the usual cinema style snack counter. Large... More
