The Glasgow IMAX has the biggest screen, the best sound and many movies are in 3D. It is also a pleasant environment in and around it. The staff are all pleasant and helpful and make the experience of seeing a movie here a very good one. It's only a little more expensive than the multiplex cinemas in town, but is... More

We like to come a few times a year for big action movies. Today, it's Kong. Not reviewing the movie. At Imax Glasgow the screen is massive and a brilliant movie experience. Comfy seats and enough room to breathe.

IMAX is next to the science centre, there parking cost £5 for the 3 hours we were there. This is the biggest screen in Scotland and really looks like... More

Been to the IMAX a few times now. Its hard to describe how brilliant an experience it is to watch a movie on a screen this size. Watched 2D and 3D films on here - all are just brilliant. Picture is amazing, as is the sound. If you can get in reasonably quickly, best heading up the back if you... More

Watched Dr Strange in here and what an experience it was! Far better than regular 3d films and I look forward to another visit in the near future. Bit more expensive than standard cinemas but it is worth the extra money. Give it a go

This cinema is brilliant. Delightful staff, I think the manager is a well-dressed Asian guy, he's always upbeat and helpful. Guys on the Box Office too are great. Image and sound quality are unsurpassed in Glasgow. Cineworld in town is a total waste of money in comparison. Filled with talking people, people eating and the morbidly obese. The IMAX cinema...

I recently saw two films at the Glasgow IMAX, one of which was in 3D. Having the large screen ad he 3D effect greatly enhanced the experience and I would certainly recommend IMAX for 3D. For the normal 2D film it was little different from viewing in a standard cinema.
