The IMAX Experience

IMAX screens stretch from floor to ceiling and from wall to wall, creating a picture so big it feels like you’re inside the film. Yet somehow you can see every detail in the stunning, high-resolution screen.

You also experience IMAX’s heart-pounding audio. Dozens of powerful speakers, placed all around you, ensure you can hear a pin drop and be able to tell exactly where it landed. Become part of the film, get caught up in the action and escape into another reality.

Food and Drinks
