The 3d films in the glasgow imax are amazing compared to the regular cinemas who claim show 3d films. It is a little more expensive but it is worth every penny. We have seen many films here from harry potter, transformers, jurassic park etc and they were are amazing in 3d. Once you've been here, you will keep coming back.

Went here to see Jurassic World in 3D. It has the largest screen in Scotland and the sound was amazing. Would recommend a visit.

We went to watch Jurassic World and felt that we wanted to see it on a big screen. At £14.50 a ticket I expected more. The seats were torn and not comfortable at all. I'm under 5' so it wasn't too bad for leg room for me. However, my friend is 6'3" and was in agony as the seating was... More

The massive screen is fantastic and certainly worth the extra few quid. I am not a massive fan of 3D but the 3D in the imax is superb. Great that you get a discount on the starbucks with your unlimited card.

The biggest, meanest and the best IMAX screen in the world, the theatre at the quay should be on the check list of any cinema lover who visits the city of Glasgow. Having watched quite a number of films at this theatre, I can surely say that I have never experienced a movie better than the ones I did here.... More

I only go here if I have a voucher or am lucky to get free tickets here as it is expensive to watch a film here. Even if you have a cineworld card you need to pay a supplement. Love the seating as they are very comfortable and plenty of seats. The rows do curve towards the screen. Also love... More

Loved this venue. Interesting to look at it and great on the inside. Gigantic screen and a huge amount of seats, but must say that the 3D on the trailers was far superior to the 3D in the 2.5hr film I then sat through. Came out wanting to vomit cause it was all too much between the size of the... More

The imax 3D is way better than the normal cinema 3D, the screen is huge and the seats curve around it in rows. You are given your glasses when you go to sit down and hand them back after the film. Prices are a bit steep but its a great experience all the same. We bought and paid online then... More
