previously 20th century, it used to be my favourite movie theatre cos of its location and selection of movies. When it became Imax i was there at the opening party and i couldnt wait to watch my first movie in 3D! The good thing about imax is first of all its location, right in the middle of town so its...

The Imax cinema is amazing. It gives the real deal in movie entertainment, with real 3D features. Good spot to enjoy with friends and family.

Had the best movie experience of my life with the almost life 3D viewing and not to mention the sound quality , which was simply epic to say the least. The screens are generally larger than the ones that you get in other theaters, which make it even better for the viewer. I got to catch the latest movies at... More

The Imax is a great place to catch a flick both in 2 & 3D. Picture and sound quality is really excellent, you can tell this by the number of people willing to pay about £6 (not including refreshments) for a single ticket. However the management should be made aware that a movie is not really over until all the... More
