“Biggest Screen In The Uk”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

Fantastic what a place to go and watch a film,its the biggest screen i have ever seen the quality of sound is awesome and the seats are comfy the price is expensive when you aren't used to London prices but this is to be expected and it was a must when i went to see Godzilla in may for my birthday. If you want a film experience you will never forget try the BFI imax you won't regret it.

“Impressive”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

The tickets were expensive, it's true, but the experience was really good - the screen is so huge that you feel very immersed and involved in the screening. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, too.

“LOVE The Imax”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

The BFI Imax is the biggest screen in the UK. And probably the best. The visuals pop, the sound is ace. We upgraded to the bigger more comfy chairs and they too where pretty awesome and well worth the additional money.

And whilst base prices are £18 it's only slightly more than the Vue in the West End which is a much worse screen.

Simply the best place to watch a film in the UK.

Why only 4 stars? They made us watch Guardians Of The galaxy in 3D when, actually, I would have preferred a 2D version.

“IMAX experience”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Watching a film here is an experience never to be forgotten. There are IMAX cinemas everywhere now, only this is a 'real' one. Proper giant screen, which you sit very close to, fills your peripheral vision & almost makes you believe you are a part of the movie!

Wherever you go, you will never see a film better, than when you saw it here!
