The film was great but the parking system they have when leaving was horrendous. With so many people leaving at once it took 20 minutes just to get out the car park! If you want the IMAX experience I'd recommend a trip to Edinburgh (including...More

I've never been to an Imax before and was worried it would be very gimmicky. However, I thoroughly enjoyed "Bladerunner 2049" in 3-D. The screen is huge and made the world of the film very real and engaging. There is plenty of room where you...More

Very expensive cinema experience. No staff to help. Queues for tickets, entry, food, car parking rebate, paying for parking and leaving car park. Wouldn't go to Imax again. Really need more staff to help and machines that accept new style £5.

Best cinema in Scotland. Went to see Dunkirk. Cinema full so book your ticket. Comfortable sitting with plenty of leg room. Sound was amazing.

Great theatre! I saw Rogue 1 in 3D! Quick Glasgow visit. Nice to find something to do! There's a Starbucks as you enter the theatre, very convenient for a coffee and a vegan snack on my way out.

Hi - there is a car park at the IMAX. Customers can get discounted rates, just see the staff at the snacks counter and you will pay £3 before 5 or £1 after 5.
