“Just too big!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We saw The Last Reef in 3D. We were in the middle, and up the back, but I reckon the screen is just too big. With a 3D show you are continually turning your head from side to side trying to look at everything, and trying to focus on stuff. My eyes were tired when we got...it felt like hard work !

“If you love Imax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

I love Imax cinemas and this one is a beauty, great location if you are a tourist, easy to find, within walking distance of everything, and not expensive, if you love Imax, you'll love this one!

“Definitely worth doing at least once!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

From memory it was about $18 (now if you go on the Monorail you get a pamphlet with vouchers for 20% off entry to Imax and a load of other things so it's worth it). I went to the Antarctic / Polar Bear one; it was about 45 - 50 minutes long. Definitely worth going for the 3D experience and kids will love it for the sheer size of the screen is awesome! It's right in Darling Harbour so you can have a nice potter around there too and there is a great Gelato place right next door to Imax. For what you pay for everything else in Sydney this is a good stop.

“Big screen-convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Located in the Darlling Harbour area a good place to spend a rainy day. There were several films playing and I enjoyed people watching as much as the films.

“so worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

awesome, couldnt take my eyes off the screen! great 3d glasses too if you are in a 3d viewing. the seats comfortable and allround awesome. prices high but thats too be expected at the worlds largest cinema screen, 60 bucks for 2 adults to a 3d movie, which doesnt have any extra charges for 3d. not much food on offer but plenty cafes takeaways and restaurants outside, definetly worth the money!
