    Great big theatre! Love the comfy seats, superb sound system, cinema projector's clarity, and the nearby toilet! But don't seat too near, the headrest of the seat in front of you could block your view

    If you have purchased your tickets online, use their self-service counters to collect your ticket or head straight to the snacks corner to collect your tickets and snacks.

    Watching your favourite movie on IMAX 3D is totally worth it. This is a really good cinema. They got about 3 in 1 place.

    if you're watching on a weekend and plans to buy some movie snacks, you better be early as the queues go crazy minutes before the movie starts.

    Try not to sit at the side seats of the hall... you'd get neck-aches trying to get an optimal angle for the 3D effect. Centre seats would be the best.

    Seats have a headrest which I really like, but the seats are joined so if the person beside you moves a lot you feel it.

    $19 a pop, and discounts are not valid. So you might want to choose which movies to IMAX.

    If you have already bought a ticket online, you'll still have to get there at least 30 mins before show time to pick it up in case of long lines.
