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

I have no idea of the cost- I saw Harry Potter 5 with my school and as a chaperon I didn't have to pay ^_^ LARGE area, great sound, comfy seats, plenty of space. Staff were very good. We were able to sneak in sweets (just have to be careful with them!)
