BFI IMAX will no longer be managed and operated by ODEON.

It’s been our privilege to bring years of movie magic to our guests at this iconic venue, and to conjure lasting cinematic memories for so many.

BFI IMAX will be managed by a different operator. But don't worry - incredible cinematic experiences with ODEON await you, a short distance away...
