Dubai is good at the biggest, the tallest, the shiniest and the newest. The IMAX is not. The actual screen is as you'd expect, massive. The seats are comfortable. That's the positive. The negatives are more - first up it's at Meydan which looks unfinished. Parking is a mess - no clear signage and always looks deserted until you eventually... More

None of that rubbish at Ibn Battuta Mall! We saw the last Harry Potter film at what they claimed was "the only IMAX theatre in the UAE" and ended up having a headache. Meydan IMAX is three storeys tall. That should give you an idea of just how big the screen is and how larger than life the film becomes.... More

I thought it would be a great experience to see FIFA 2014 in their wide screen. So I together with some other friends booked tickets 2 weeks in advance (using my credit card). I received a call few days before the match, advising that they are not going to show any of the match. The agent said she would call... More

we went here for watching Godzila in 3D, the screen is so huge and sound quality is excellent. We had a tough time finding this place coz there is no sign boards or information at the entrance. overall visiting this place is good if you want to watch a blockbuster movie in IMAX 3D.. Movie experience here is excellent.

Have been a few times, and it seems to be not well patronised. Screen seems too close, even if you pay for VIP (at the back)

Theater wasn't bad at all, specially if you want to watch a movie for once in a biggest screen. It was excellent. But there was weird smell in the theater, I don't know what that was, But the smell was like you know if the room is closed for a long time and no fresh air comes in! something like... More

Massive screen and great sound, which I expect from an iMax theater. A little bit far though but well worth the trip if the film is worth going to. Not much in terms of atmosphere and eats, but well-it's the screen size that counts
