The format speaks for itself. Their tagline is "Watch a movie, or be in one." I agree. When you watch a movie shot in IMAX (not digitally upscaled like they do sometimes) you really are in the movie. The fourth Transformers remains my all-time best IMAX experience, until Jim Cameron makes the next Avatar of course.

Believe this is the only truly 3d cinema in Nairobi cos been to others and they are not quite as vivid. The location was not great for me as it was right in town and I felt vulnerable packing out there in the open especially if it is a late night movie. Visited a few times and loved it, just... More

good enough service, clean theatre for the 7 am show which i usually watch myself or with 7 other strangers which means i can relax and have any outbursts i want depending on the movie. i hope they keep up this slot for adrenaline junkies like myself who enjoy that morning jolt better than coffee...:)

Well priced IMAX movie theater which has 3D capability. Be sure to check what movie is showing as they rotate several movies on the single screen each day. Have been several times.

I go in there cool and come out sweating, either they dont switch on the ac's or they dont have them at all...the 3D is actually good enough but the screen is too large, some scenes in the movie can make you turn your head if you are seated on either ends of the theatre :)

Best 3d showing in Nairobi. Largest screen and best sound in town. Would have been 5 stars were it not for the less other than movie itself experience. Only seem to serve Coke, hotdogs and popcorn! Nothing else. Crumped space at the booking booth, washrooms and waiting bay.

The screen is amazing, make sure to get on in the back 5 rows or it might be overwhelming to move your head around everytime. Aad for the snacks yhey serve, nothing... More

it's a bit odd seeing in the foyer where you pay, which is upstairs, then you come back down for your free sandwich and lemonade. The cinema is very small, but seats very comfortable. the viewing experience is definitely very realistically 3D, in many scenes. I enjoyed it, oh the film was 300, Rise of an Empire.
