“A great 3-d Experience”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Imax Theatre Sydney has the largest screen in the world and this experience is wonderful. I went here to watch the dinosaur 3-d film and it did not disappoint me. I haven't been to Imax for a long time now so I should come back to this place.

“Excellent (if expensive) but sit at the back!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Pricy but brilliant screen - saw Star Trek: Into Darkness and Pacific Rim. Both were excellent on the big screen.

Can't understate the size of the screen, which completely fills your field of vision. Would definitely recommend the back row and even then you'll be turning your head to read captions - if I'm honest it's probably TOO big, but still great :-)

“Jurassic Experience”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

I hadn't been to the IMAX for a few years & was keen for this return trip but not sure what to expect as we were seeing the older film, Jurassic Park. It was sensational on the big screen! I loved every minute & would recommend it! The only drawback is the price.

I've been to IMAX a few times as a kids with school for exhursions. But my latest visit was 2 weeks ago to watch Man of Steel. it was fabulous loved it. The huge screen is unbelieveable and the sound affects are amazing. (Just dont sit in the first 5 rows as your neck will kill from looking up constantly. Imax is located in the middle of Darling Harbour and close to restaurants and the night life. The IMAX is located within 5 minutes of the city tram line which is great for getting around the city.

“who can argue with 8 storey high screen?”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Saw "Man of Steel" in 3D at IMAX. Looked and sounded great - very immersive. Usual cinema food and amenities available. IMAX is located in Darling Harbour with great restaurants and hotels nearby. A great part of Sydney.
