The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.

The IMAX Theatre is a great venue for the right movie. With its extra-tall screen and with the right sound effects, it makes for a spectacular show. My favourite is Beowulf, about a heroic Viking warrior slaying a sea-monster, known only as Grendel.

We really enjoyed visiting IMAX. It is right next to the museum, so it makes for a good day out. We went to IMAX then went across to the museum. We went to a 3-D movie which was difficult with masks that we managed to get through okay. Well worth it

Twice already The staff member has charged me $25 more and disagreed with me in the end realising I was right and twice my family missed the beginnings of our movies becas of staff errors . Very annoyed as the staff are friendly but not educated enuff on charging correct prices it’s ridiculous so be careful ur charged correctly as they have no clue unless u mention it & you will miss out on movies becas of them with no compensation just an oops oh yeah ur right !! We do love imax and we are members so this is Not good enuff to be treated this way. I reccomrnd the 3D movies in this venue. Just watch out on costs.

Really enjoyed the show here at Imax.

The documentary we watched was really impressive and interesting. The 3D effects were really good.

My only small criticism is the staff seemed quite diss interested in what was going on. Had to prompt them to find out when the show was on and where and how we got there.

A great place to visit with lots of interesting interactives for the individual or family. The lovely exhibition gardens are next door or chill out and watch a movie on the extra-large IMAX screen.

Combination of IMAX theatre and Melbourne Museum is great! You can do it in any order and fit in a lunch in the cafe between the two activities.

One day is not enough to go through all the permanent exhibitions included in the museum entry fee. Kids loved the virtual reality in the exhibition about road safety.

Came here to see The Mummy Movie in Imax. Comfy seats, a tad more expensive than a normal cinema. But great popcorn and drinks. The only I have with coming here is that the screen is way too close to the seating. Only a 5 minute walk to Lygon st, will be back again for sure.
