Imax - Review

The biggest IMAX theatre is known to be of eight storeys. The visitors cherish the experience guaranteed by the IMAX film. To add to the impact, these screens are curved just to take into consideration a fringe vision. Every last scene in the IMAX theatre appears overwhelming. It is usually accepted that pictures on an IMAX film seem 10 times bigger than the normal 35mm screens. Accordingly, in spite of the fact that the screen is bigger than the general films screens, the quality remains perfectly clear. Also the state of the craftsmanship is advanced and sound. Irrespective of whether you look over a 2d or IMAX 3d, the film is certain to be amusing to watch. Motion pictures made for an IMAX theatre are intended to virtually transport you to the very spot, be it the rainforests of the Equador or to some place in space. Individuals are so amazed by the IMAX experience, that they wouldn't fret paying increasingly for a motion picture that they have as of recently seen in expected theatres. Everything about IMAX is remarkable huge. Films made for IMAX are known to utilize a 15,000 watt light with more than 150 IMAX movies in dissemination. A motion picture producer might require extraordinary IMAX Polaroids to shoot the motion picture, exceptional projectors to showcase the film and an IMAX prepared specialist who can play it for the viewers.

IMAX is surely the most astounding, the most moving and the clearest of all motion picture going background. Films made in the IMAX design have been super grossers in the movies.

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

  • Dear IMAX Kenya 20th Century Your theater still has the best viewing screen in the country but the experience is continually getting deplorable as days go. The 3D glasses are hardly ever cleaned. Or if they are, the person responsible just isn't doing their job. Perhaps consider the option of allowing your clientele to purchase their own 🤓. Last time I was there (during Jurassic World) screening, the movie happened to turn 2D for about five minutes in the middle of the movie. What's that about? Plus I get the idea of charging extra for the upper half of the theater but calling that VIP doesn't even suit the experience. Perhaps even consider a separate entrance for the VIP tickets and a complimentary drink or 🍿 every time. Anyway just a concerned movie goer 👣 3rd July 2018

  • If you want to watch a movie this is the place to be. There are many cinemas in Kenya but this is the only one that shows Imax 3d. I have compared regular 3D and Imax 3D and I have to say IMAX 3D is much better. The cost of watching a movie varies from 300 in the mornings to over 1000ksh in the evenings. If you want to save money go in the mornings. Still on pricing, you can buy a regular or premium ticket. With a premium ticket you get to stay at the back seats with overall better viewing experience.

  • The theater was clean and not stuffy as I thought it would be. The screen was huge. Like huge in a nice way. On the downside, the delays of the movie hours are wanting. They are not timely. A movie that we paid to watch at 3pm was open for show at 6pm. Three hours later man! That is ridiculous especially if on a tight schedule. Other than that, the experience was okay.

  • For movie lovers, IMAX is the place to be. Big screen with thrilling images, gigantic speakers with thousands of watts for an amazing sound surround, very helpful and friendly staff. In general, the best and unforgettable movie experience ever. It's worth your time and money.
