Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

We had a wonderful time! Been there twice! Everyone is very nice:) we will be returning. Saw Jane Goodalls Chimpanzees this last time, it was great. I would like to recommend it as an activity when visiting Victoria!

Thank you for taking the time to post a comment.
We're certainly glad you enjoyed your visit and Jane Goodall's Wild Chimpanzees.
That film was part of 2013 Film Festival which ended on Feb. 28th, but that said, we look forward to opening more films in the coming year and hopefully hosting you again soon!
Kindest regards,
Paul Wild

“Annual pass is a Super Value”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

My daughter and I had an annual pass and enjoyed every show offered at the IMAX Victoria in the Museum. Our favourite was Born to be Wild, which we saw several times. Jane Goodall's Wild Chimpanzees, Whales, The Living Sea and Everest were other particular favourites.

“Wonderful Shows”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Really enjoy going to Imax and experiencing the 3D effect of the Documentaries. Wonderfully done each one and good stories behind them. Vivid colors.

“Nothing special about their IMAX”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I just wasn't all that impressed. The movie we saw (the Last Reef) seemed older, and theater was mildly run down and I noted a couple small holes in the screen early on that drove me NUTS!!

Dear guest,
Thank you for taking the time to relay your impressions after your recent visit. We take all comments seriously as they allow us to reflect on our operation and make improvements to the experience we offer where we can.

The note about a hole in the screen sent us scrambling, but upon close inspection the screen is undamaged. It's possible it was a fleck of dirt on the lens which projected and stayed on the screen. If that's the case, we certainly apologise because it's our responsibility to check the screen during the running of the feature to makes sure the image is as clean as possible.

Lastly, for your interest, The Last Reef was released in February, 2012 but we weren't able to place into the schedule until October 2012. In September last year at a giant screen cinema conference it top honours in two categories; best original score and best sound design. It will rejoin the schedule after our 2013 Film Festival ends on Feb. 28, 2013.

Kindest regards,
Paul Wild

Thank you for your kind comments and at the risk of sounding bias - I agree!

SKYFALL has been a hit throughout the world and on the giant screen here too. We have enjoyed presenting this specially formatted IMAX version and we will continue to play it at 7pm on Friday and Saturday nights until Feb. 23, 2013.

Next up... The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opening March 1, 2013!

Kindest regards,
