The ultimate immersive film experience

 IMAX takes the larger-than-life film experience you love and makes it even bigger – and even better.

At IMAX the picture extends out of sight at every corner. It’s all around you. You’re at the heart of the action… you’re in the film. There is nothing so immersive. This is the ultimate way to enjoy cinema.

From the stunning high-definition images to the realer-than-real digital audio, IMAX demands the attention of all your senses. This is a feat of technology, made possible by pioneering equipment that pushes the possibilities of cinema to the extreme.

Monster screens. Mind-blowing sound. IMAX is the natural home of the big, booming blockbuster and the 3D epic. Feel the blast of every explosion. The impact of every blow. The G force on every full-throttle corner.

Whether you’re fighting crime in the big city, touching down in a galaxy far, far, away or walking among dinosaurs, IMAX takes you there.

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.

IMAX - Is believing

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!
