I booked the premier seats (row N) for Han Solo. Great viewing position from there. But there is less leg room than in the economy class of an Embraer 190 airplane. For the price paid I expected more. They should change either the legroom or the pricing.

We went to watch Deadpool 2 and wanted to write a review about Fabio who was funny & fabulous! The cinema screen is amazing and well worth the cost as a treat!

We went here on the day after the premier day for the awesome and popular movie ' Avengers Infinity War'. We live in another country so we decided to watch the movie before our friends. It was so COOL! I am not going too talk about the movie and spoil your fun if you haven't watched it yet. If you have, you must be agreeing with me, right? The theatre was very well maintained and the staff were extremely polite. We went for the movie at 11:59 pm and it got over at 3:00 am. We stayed at a hotel nearby so it was a short walk on Waterloo Bridge.It was an excellent experience .

First time at the BFI Imax, the UK's largest IMAX Cinema. A Brilliant experience, especially when using 3D. Not sure if the same would be true when showing old classics.

Located less than 5 mins walk from Waterloo Station the BFI IMAX has the largest cinema screen in the UK. It's part of the Odeon chain so they do concession prices for senior and student visitors (ID required). It's clean and staff are friendly. Most recently seeing 'Black Panther' and 'Ready Player One' here I'm glad I went but don't feel the need to go again.
