“Once upon a time a great theatre - now just good enough”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

The IMAX Dome theatre was Big Cinema Wadala's jewel in the crown. I still remember the fantastic experience of watching Dark Knight on the dome. Now with the dome not being functional and replaced by a smaller screen at the bottom part of it, its not the same. I really wish they start the showing movies again on the dome. Otherwise a good theatre but located in the middle of nowhere. Quite close to Kurla Station (East) though.

“The Ultimate 3D Experience!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

If you are a movie buff, have been staying in Mumbai for a couple of months now and haven't been to the IMAX 3D Dome as yet, believe me guys - "You are missing something!!" Pick up a good movie with spectacular 3D effects like "The Avenger" and trust me, you will be transported to a different world altogether. As I said - it is the ultimate viewing experience - All the best!

“Unmatched Imax Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Its the only Imax theater in Mumbai, if you are a fan of movies with special effects, your experience cannot get any richer than this. I have seen many movies here and have been never disappointed. Recently I saw The Avengers and was blown away by the Imax experience. Once you see a movie here every other theaters screen, sound and experience seem pale in comparision. A must visit for an action movie fan. A word of caution though, not all movies are shot in Imax 3d, hence experience for other movies may not be as enriching as the ones exclusively shot in Imax 3D.

“IMAX Adlabs Theater”

One place sure to catch up all super animated as well sci- fi action movies, the experience is worth the money spent... so next time you have a 3D movie you know where to head to watch it..

“pricey but good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

saw many movies in here....most recent being the avatar in 3d .....nothing to complain about....had a good experience each time...the crowd though seems to be diminishing with each visit...maybe because newer and better theatres are coming up at almost all places....the location is a bit odd i must say....difficult to commute unless you have a private vehicle....and this coupled with expensive tickets is precisely why the crowd quality is maintained....no cheap crowd in here
