It was so dark inside before the movie that I almost fell over trying to get to my seat. The show began later than the stared time. After the show it was dark I almost fell again. Also when I put my complaint through online the person did not answer satisfactorily

I saw The Hobbit here and it was an amazing experience. My daughter had bought brilliant seats but it is my impression that everyone really rated the experience. It felt like you were in the film or on a ride. There was a moment where I thought I would get motion sick but that passed quickly and I became totally absorbed. I just loved it and can't recommend it highly enough. In fact on my return home I went with my other children to an Imax near our home to see the same film. I don't think I want to see a film any other way now! The 3D effects are brilliant and really enhanced the whole cinema experience.

I have just seen the Hobbit with 5 friends at the Imax Sydney. The film appeared to be a good film (story), however, the 3D Imax format is wrong for this film, with much of the fast moving action a blur. The tickets were not cheap and I will now have to see the film again in a standard format. I advise everyone to watch this film in standard format as the Imax 3D format is a gross waste of money.

great screen, specially in 3D. You need to watch a movie there rather than a halfheartly produced doco. Wish I saw avatar there!

If you like giant cinemas, its a giant cinema...just your average giant cinema. It has a great location though and can be a good option if you are in darling harbour and its too hot to wander around.
