Imax: Is Believing

IMAX is an entertainment experience so real you feel it in your bones, so magical it takes you to places you have never been: so all-encompassing you’re not just peeking through the window, but part of the action. Behind it is a world of high technology – advanced software and equipment pioneered by IMAX.

Absolutely stunning image clarity and extraordinary sound combine on the screen to unforgettable effect. And in 3D – well, it’s the ultimate big-screen experience.

Coming Soon To IMAX - Godzilla

Experience the roar and might of the world’s most infamous radioactive beast on a giant scale in IMAX 3D . Gareth Edwards’ epic remake based on the monstrous title creature, Godzilla has been digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment to become a part of this phenomenal film.

What's so great about IMAX

Really big screen entertainment

Huge screens that maximise your field of vision, no matter where you’re sitting; a far greater resolution than conventional film systems; and state-of-the-art sound that is tailored for each auditorium and precisely tuned for each film presentation – that’s IMAX.

See more, hear more, feel more – immerse yourself in the film experience that you’ll want to reach out and touch. In extraordinarily high resolution, with projection lights so bright they can be seen from the moon and astonishingly precise sound – IMAX takes your breath away.

IMAX screen - ODEON Swiss Cottage

Made by pioneers

This breath-taking technology is packed full of innovative techniques and equipment. For those films not shot with one of the few IMAX cameras in the world, Digital re-mastering ‘up-converts’ films into the IMAX format.

IMAX screens are housed in specially-designed spaces, the largest of which is ODEON’s BFI IMAX in London. Designed not only to provide a view without boundaries, but also to feature laser-aligned speakers, they provide an experience that you really will want to reach out and touch.


Also in 3D

As if IMAX wasn’t enough in itself, you can also enjoy selected films in 3D. The difference between IMAX 3D and normal 3D is the same as that between IMAX and regular film: it’s vast. With the same fundamental principles at its heart as traditional 3D, IMAX 3D takes you much further.

Utterly immersive, IMAX 3D also heightens sensation. So, sit back, put on your 3D glasses and let the film take over – you won’t believe it’s not real!
