“Wonderful movie experience, wanting staff”
Review of Imax

Imax
Ranked #6 of 19 Fun & Games in Nairobi
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 September 2013

The theater experience is wonderful. On the other hand the staff can be quite rude and unprofessional. They don't seem to have gotten the way around to handling a large number of clients especially when shows are so closely timed.
The vendors outside the theater are ridiculously overpriced and the popcorn and hotdogs arent even that good.
If going for a movie, the movie experience will be great

WOW! The whole experience was actually great! The movie wasnt really that awesome but honestly IMAX have worked hard to ensure that everything on their end was more than splendid.

This place is often overcrowded, the theater dirty, customer service is not bad but not the best either. It's just very average. High school and university students are crawling at the place.

If you want to see a movie for a date or as a family, don't go here. Westgate, Junction, (or the theaters in a suburban area) are much more better.

If you want a great movie watching experience without a "social" aspect, go here. Size of the screen and the sound is the best, but the feel of the place isn't too good.

the screen is just so huge that you can't look at it all at once. yeah,u have to move your eyes from one ends of the screen to the other, at least i had to n i was on the third last row. the 3d is simply breath taking. a bit too loud though. depends on the movie, obviously. i wish they allowed snacks in there though. u can only go in with a soda n the popcorn they sell outside or a bottle of water. SOMEBODY should look into that!

I remember visiting the old 20th century cinema in Nairobi and i thought to myself how terrible it was especially the sound. Fast forward to Imax 20th century and the movie experience is just superb.. The screen, the sound the atmosphere is just breathtaking... It makes you want to watch movies again and again...
