My friends had heard that IMAX was great and never having been were keen to give it a try. Since none of us really speak Spanish we picked a documentary about sharks to watch. It was very disappointing, perhaps because it was filmed under water, but the 3D was poor and picture blurry, so I suggest you don't waste your... More

I love IMAX movies and I loved this place when it opened up. Sadly there seems to have been no money spent for maintenance in the last 20 years. The place is falling apart in front of your eyes. The restaurant and the bar are closed, the posters outside are faded, the neon signs are broken and the whole place... More

This place offers a variety of options, shopping, eating out, entertainment or just sitting and enjoying the sunset whilst watching the action around the port area.

Why not, when visiting the city with children. It is pretty entertaining, although not cheap, and offers a hugh screen and amphitheater-like sitting

We love IMAX films and try to catch one when we travel with the kids. In a tourist city like Barcelona, we expected them to have showings in multiple languages. Unfortunately, they were only showing films in spanish when we were there. In Spain, I'd expect most of the showings to be in Spanish. However, I'd expect some films to... More

We go to this place every time we are in Barcelona. However, the quality of the documentaries (they dont show films) is poor, the glasses are old and scratched, and the productions are old. Now with imax films in 3D (e.g. Prometheus)' Barcelona's imax should be closed, its novelty is over. One more thing, the toilets are disgusting with poo... More

We booked our event at IMAX Barcelona august 2006. Just before the event they cancelled the booking and didn't offer any payment of damages or another solution. We were stuck with 120 people with hotel bookings, flight tickets, catering, music etc. Reason of the cancellation was the selling on of the rights of renting out the venue to another company....
