yeah the screen is massive but ay time of day there are usually noisy people, even in the late night ones. i went to see harry potter 6 there at about 9pm and there were kids talking through it. they should restrict things like that. it's bloody expensive too.

I just had the IMAX Experience this afternoon. If you have never been to IMAX, the 23m by 32m makes any normal cinema looks bad :P The resolution is much better than normal theatres and makes 3D effects much more lively. Needless to say, the sound quality is not comparable as well. Melbourne IMAX is the World's 3rd Largest Screen... More

We only get down to the city occasionally and our regular visit to IMAX is never disappointing. Easy to book online and print out you tickets, pick your seat etc. Being only a block away from Lygon street means an easy walk to restaurants before or after the film. It's a great way to spend a night out.

The IMAX has always been one of my favourite places! Very similar to the normal movies but jumbo size and in 3D usualy. Everything about it is amazing! makes you genuinly feel like you can touch the screen and puts regular 3D to shame. I would definatly take some time out of your day to experience watching a movie or... More
