Omniversum An all-round amazing experience Omniversum - the movie theatre where you are part of the action. It has a screen 4500 times larger than an ordinary TV, pumps out 15,000 watts of sound from 36 speakers and immerses your senses in the most amazing film experience ever. This unique movie theatre is designed to transport you to another world. The big-screen films take you to space, where you can meet the astronauts of the International Space Station, and bring you face-to-face with the most fascinating scenery and creatures on Earth. And all without having to leave your seat. You don't just watch a film here, you become part of it! Omniversum, an attraction in The Hague for over 33 years, is a unique movie theatre, the only one of its kind in the Benelux. The films are suitable for all ages, unless specified otherwise. The films are in Dutch but a special app lets you follow the original English-language version using your own mobile phone and headset. Earphones can also be obtained from the Omniversum front desk. A new film starts every hour on the hour. If you want to watch a second film on the same day, you only pay EUR 5.50. Omniversum is suitable for children from the age of four, but some young children may find the large screen and sound system rather overwhelming.

I went to watch 'Under the Sea' which was certainly worthwhile. The screenings are in Dutch but you can get English language audio by paying an extra 1 euro for the headphones. There is, however, no volume control which results in a quite loud audio...More

This cinema has only one theatre but it is unique: you are almost completely surrounded by the film while sitting on a chair in a very steep stand. The warning that you might feel a bit nausea during the film is not exaggerated! make sure...More

If it is rainy and stormy and you look for an indoor activity, this is good for an hour to two. It is like an old cinema with a round screen. Topics mostly nature.

This was the only disappointment of my recent visit. The theatre contains a domed 3 D screen which you have to sit slanted to view - it could have shown some amazing views. The staff give you ear pieces for transalations but the cord doesn't...More
