“Best 3D movie experience”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Watched Star Trek: Into Darkness and the Imax 3D experience is incredible! I have never been really impressed with 3D movies until now. The images really felt like they were inches in front of me and I could reach out and touch them. There are times when there is a blurry effect when going between shots. But overall it was great. This Imax theater was clean with friendly and helpful staff. It has enough parking so that I did not have to worry about that. I was glad to pay the parking fee just for that piece of mind.

“Great Expereince Poor Food”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Enjoyed the movie, IMA has a great screen , great picture and great sound ............. shame about the food though all juice in bottles no buttered popcorn and limited snacks i wasnt overly impressed by this.
Compared to other cinemas in Glasgow its is probably the best to watch a movie but amongst the worse selection of food there... but overall if you havent been you need to try it ( bring your own food though lol just kidding )

“The place to see a film on the BIG screen”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Was along to see the new Star Trek film #intodarkness

The tickets were almost half the price of the London IMAX cinema - with a smaller audience and a screen thats only 1m smaller - so a good value cinema visit in that regard.

The only downside is you can't prebook your seat - we went at 8.30 for a 9.15 seat and were about the middle of the queue.

At the moment they are showing films on the proper 70mm IMAX format - later this year Cineworld will take over the running in the evenings - an are investing in the new digital projectors - which is a retrograde step. However they do promise seat booking - so you'll not have to waste time in the queue.

If you want to see a film in the best possible way I don't think there can be a better way in Soctland.

Parking can be a bit of an issue - its a science centre.... use you head and if you park furthest from the centre you'll get out much quicker...!

“Excellent film think the projector needed clean”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Had a fab day out to Imax to see Star Trek into darkness which was fab. However anytime there was a bright scene on the screen we could see what looked like little hairs on the screen. Quite distracting! Also cinema quite hot
