Amazing IMAX cinema inside the Science museum! The theatre is equipped with a huge 70mm IMAX 3D screen (much better than many cinemas in London) and spacious seats that provide a great experience. I love this cinema! I have seen all the movies playing here and my preference is: No 1 Mysteries of the Unseen World" (amazing film), No 2 "Under the Sea", No 3 "Hidden Universe" and No 4 "Robots"....more

i love the imax cinema... the 3D is amazing, feels and looks so real like you can touch it... i can't remember the name of movie/documentary that i watched but the only disappointing thing about it was that it didn't go for that long i think it was only 30 or 40 mins... i think i would have enjoyed it more if i watched something that went on for a little longer.. but the actual cinema it self...more

I love the IMAX Cinema! I went with my GCSE English, Science and Maths groups to see Space Station 3D and it was amazing. Their snack prices are cheap. A small popcorn combo costs £2.50. They also have 3 different types of popcorn. Salted, Sweet or Caramel. I chose the caramel popcorn. It was really nice. Their screen was huge. 80 feet wide and the IMAX Space film is in 15/70mm. It was amazing.more

That said though, if you love your wildlife films then watching them in 3D is as close as you are going to get than diving with them

I would go again just for the experience!more

After a long walk through the museum, it's time to watch a movie!

This IMAX-cinema is headed in the museum-building. Nice films are shown on the big screen.

But: the price is heavy, the films are often really bad documentaries, which are really short. The 3D-effect isn't really that great

Well, you should visit it once, but one experience should be enough.

Maybe it'll be better to watch a...more
