first large dome screen I have seen - you do feel like you are part of the experience. The films are more of an educational nature, and last 40 minutes, but you have to pay each time. Check the website for the current shows and watch the trailers - we saw the lemurs, which was an interesting show, but one... More

The screen in the omni theatre was cylindrical so that u get a real viewing experience. There are 3 movies shown in a loop. We watched lemurs. Shark show may be good tooit is just a 40 min documentary show but a must watch thing..

If you had been to Futuroscope in Poitiers, France or L'Hemisferic in Valencia, Spain, the verdict is that Omni Theatre is a regional best but not a world's classic. This is my second visit after a space of 10 years. Some refurbishment and replacement works done. The entrance to the Omni Theatre was unusual. On its own, an Omni ticket... More

This attraction was opened in 1988 and has been a quiet gem of Singapore. The curved screen has recently be renovated and replaced with a new one after more than 20 years. Worth every penny for the massive cinema screen experience, 3D experience and powerful audio system. Only complaint is that there is not many variety of shows. The Omni... More

We (2 adults, 3 kids) saw an Omni Max movie on Polar Bears in the Arctic. The viewing experience was spectacular. Audio quality and seats were very good too. The smell of food brought in by other viewers was a bit of a distraction (allowing food in probably needs to be stopped by the management - it's a 40 minute... More

Forget IMAX. This is still the biggest screen and visual feast in Singapore since I was a kid over 20 years ago. It used to be free seating, but they have improved on the system by having allocated seats these days. No more long queues at the entrance caused by people trying to get the seats They seem to show... More
