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.

    Best of two worlds. Cinema and Real! Watch a favourite movie on a gigantic screen, then stay in the same building and enjoy the natural world . Great as a solo or family experience. Best to book online. Read parking conditions.

    IMAX Theater comes alive with Beowulf
    An IMAX Theatre is very large, so big in fact it's almost overwhelming. I have seen several movies here, including Beowulf. Beowulf had an excellent cast, including Sir Anthony Hopkins. Grendel, the sea monster, was defeated by Beowulf, the savior of the Geets. Beowulf is an ancient story, but ir came alive in the IMAX Theater.

    Arctic 3D. Our Frozen Planet
    My wife and I were here to watch "Arctic 3D. Our Frozen Planet" by BBC Earth. It was narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch. Exclusive to IMAX. We thoroughly enjoyed watching this spectacular documentary in 3D. Well worth the price of entry.

Not as big as compared to other imax cinemas such as sydney or those in India. Seating is quite congested too. The movie experience is fine but still feels uncomfortable due to seating. Watched fantastic beasts movie and the screen experience was good.

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.
