Does what it says on the tin. Robocop in 3d was amazing (for my boyfriend). Huge screen. Coffee store/bar in the foyer. Student discount useful. Would have been upset if we'd paid extra for the premium seats as they didn't seem worth it.

Would return for the right movie. Gotta love a giant screen.

Took my mum to watch a movie here. Loved the introduction by the cinema host who told us about the lighting, sound system and the net screen which they use. Be sure not to sit too near the front as the screen is 3 double decker buses high apparently lol!! may get a cramp in your neck! Amazing experience and will definitely be back when I'm in London.

First time at the London IMAX and wow it really is an experience.
"Gravity" in 3-D was amazing.
True if you sit too near to the front you will find scanning the screen more of a problem.
Bit expensive, but then this is London.
As a previous reviewer remarked, choose your film carefully as some are not really worthy of 3-D special treatment.

The size of the screen is truly impressive. Really disappointed with the Premier seats though - leg room left a lot to be desired. Don't fancy sitting any closer than we were (third row back). Conveniently located. Comfortable bar area.

The best IMAX in the UK, maybe in Europe as well. The theater is well maintained and its screen and sound are superb. When I want to see 3D movies, I would not hesitate to come here although we have to pay more!
