“A Powerful Presentation.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

The Arromanche 360 was the first thing we did on our visit to Normandy and it worked out very well. The powerful audio-visual presentation effectively conveys the emotion of the events of June 1944 with an historic overview that was very valuable as we visited other sites.

I highly recommend this site!

“Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

You will find yourself in the middle of the battle during the invasion of Normandy, surrounded by nine screens with constant action on every one of them. The 19 minutes film, called “Normandy’s 100 days” is covering the events before during and after the invasion with some powerful and emotional scenes. The entry fee is only 4,90 euros and there is a nice shop at the exit of the theatre.

“Interesting but Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Ive been to Arromanches twice and the second time I got the chance to visit the 'cinema' again but declined. The film is interesting but short, Arromanches is definitely worth a visit but the 'cinema' isn't.

“What an experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Up on a hill overlooking where the D Day invasion occurred, is this 360 20 minute view on the planning and execution of the D Day invasion. It is hard to take it all in, but very well done . You won't be disappointed

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

If you are exploring the Normandy beaches a stop at Arromanches 360 is certainly worthwhile. The theatre has a 360 degree screen which show the progression of World War 2. On entering you stand so you an view all the screens and it is loud which adds to the whole experience. Suggest that before going check the times the theatre shows the movie.
