Private Cinema!

We watched American Sniper on A Sunday at 12 o'clock and were the only 2 in the place! Nice that there is a Starbucks so you can get a decent coffee to take in with you.

Saw "Interstellar" here. The staff were very friendly and the seating was comfortable. Sound system worked just fine.

Great place to watch movies in IMAX, been there with friends a couple of times. Only downside is the accessibility of the place with public transports which is not great, and the ergonomic of the glasses.

We usually attend the IMAX on special occasions and today we had booked tickets for the hobbit. As previously stated there's no doubting the quality of the screen and sound however the whole experience was dampened withe the parking situation. So you get a ticket, then queue to have it validated to qualify for a cheaper price (£3 instead of... More

This is the largest IMAX screen in Scotland, so my wife and I decided to view the new movie "Interstellar" there on a Sunday evening. While there is no doubt about the size of the screen, and the quality of the viewing experience, the overall experience falls far short. The majority of people would drive to this IMAX and park...

Great viewing and sound experience, it's really worthwhile seeing certain films here. Would really benefit from getting a pick n' mix section (especially instead of a Starbucks which is downstairs?!). Also, free tap water should be easily available. I asked a member of staff at the Snacks counter for one, who explained that their soda cups could only be used... More

Enjoyed the movie, but took almost 30 mins to get out the cinema and carpark (which you need to pay for). Parking experience is a bit of a shambles all round. Won't be back. Breahead a far better option.

This is easily the best Cinema in Scotland. The screen is huge, the sound is amazing (like an earthquake) it's that powerful at times. If you want the enjoy your experience ensure you get seats near the back of the cinema - the screen is so large if you are sitting in the front half of the seats, you will... More
