Had not been here in 20 years but saw it through the eyes of my daughter. She loved it and I loved they still had the awkward young usher intro. A part of the experience.

Vancouver’s impressive 400-seat OMNIMAX, located in Science World, was opened in 1989. It is, as of this writing, the largest OMNIMAX in the world at a staggering 5 storeys high and 27 meters wide. As such when you view films here it is a truly immersive experience because the screen “wraps around” you and, concomitant with its state-of-the-art digital surround sound system, puts you right in the middle of the action. IMAX is impressive, but OMNIMAX – at least in my opinion – takes the experience to a whole new level. Interestingly, despite this large screen being in existence for nearly 30 years, I hadn’t “discovered” it until just two years ago while visiting Science World for the first time since about the summer of ’89. Granted, Science World is, for the most part, meant to be a hands-on experience for young children but you’d still think I would’ve been aware of OMNIMAX, especially since it is geared towards an older audience. Better late than never, I suppose! If you’re visiting Science World, then viewing a film on this impressive screen is a clear “must do.” It’s easy to access if the elevator is working, but if it isn’t then you’ll have the pleasure of participating in the “OMNIMAX Film/Exercise Experience,” which is a great way to get your cardio going before sitting down and enjoying the unique film experience ;)

We watched the humpback whale documentary. This was WOW!!!! I've personally been to Tonga and swan with the humpback whales, so parts of this film took me back to that adventure. The dome screen is magnificent. The seating not so much. The seating requires you to lay back a bit, but I found the legroom to be very short, which left me feeling very uncomfortable, and distracted from the experience (I'm only 5'11 or 178 cm so I'm not that tall).

In my time in Vancouver i visited here regularly. Not because i loved the subject matter of the documentaries, (which were almost always excellent) but i loved how we got pulled in by the giant curved screen that pulls us in. Pity that feature films aren't shown here. Still love it though.
