The BFI IMAX cinema is in Waterloo so it’s a short tube or taxi ride from the Rathbone but it’s worth the trip if you’re a film buff! It is home to Britain’s biggest cinema screen (20m x 26m) with almost 500 seats and the benefits are amazing! The sharpness of the sound and the picture quality is remarkable and one journalist was quoted as saying ‘you don’t just see an IMAX film, you feel it in your bones’.
To make the experience even better, some films at the IMAX are shown in 3D. It’s worth noting that tickets are a little more expensive but it does of course include the 3D glasses and lots more enjoyment so if you want a 3D experience in London, check the listings at the BFI IMAX.
