Visited to watch aqua man in 3D and the experience was amazing. Very comfortable seats and great easy viewing . Quite a queue at the end of the movie for a bathroom but otherwise a great experience. Was also cool in the extremely hot weather

My daughter has never been to Imax. She loved it ( as did i ), massive screen, comfy seating and friendly staff. We booked tickets and car parking on - line the day before to save time. All went well and had a great experience.

Came to see 2001:ASO with the promise of laser projector, etc. While impressively big screen the film itself did not really lend itself to such a large format. I suppose it has a lot to do with the film stock used at the time, etc....More
