Imax, Nairobi Reviews

  • The screen is wonderful. Epic size of the 3D screen. The washrooms are pretty decent as well as the snacks on offer. They also offer caramel popcorn. However, they could have better management of movies in terms of ticketing. There have been cases of double bookings for certain movies. They also changed the pricing. 3D glasses could use a boost

  • The selling of tickets at the food stands kicks the day off horribly for those who had bought tickets online and just want snacks but now have to line up for forever. It's hard to appreciate much after that. The snack selection itself leaves a lot to be desired. Do not seat in the first few rows. The 3D experience is comprised, even none existent towards the screen edges. The sound is mediocre, and definitely not top notch surround. I'm really sorry I've nothing positive to say about the place.

  • The Kenyan Cinema that started the cinema going revolution by offering affordable rates and awesome premiere packages. It is the most conveniently located cinema in Kenya at the heart of the CBD, Mama Nina street. It has a lounge and bar which often offers cool package deals. They have a food court with all the treats and drinks you need to enjoy a love. Of late, customers have had issues with 'deceptive' and overly complicated rates and at times quality issues with their cheapest screenings.

  • The movie was great but the 3D glasses are a bit blurry. Management should look into that. Also, why should a movie start late? What's the point of schedules then? Please separate the buying of tickets from the snack outlets. It just slows the whole process and makes for stagnant long queues The complimentary drinks were a nice touch though. #WakandaForever😂

  • Been a huge fan simply because it's in the CBD, great service. Huge screen and comfortable seats. Booking efficiency, Clean theater and well ordered. My only concern is seats reserved for people who book online. Other than that everything else is great.
