Cheers, never got to see Dunkirk, so seeing it in IMAX is a bonus


This is a good deal, I saw Dunkirk in IMAX and it's just not very entertaining. Thor or Guardians would be better options if you haven't seen them.

Dunkirk is well made, acted and directed but just not enjoyable in my opinion.
It's £3.70 because of the online booking fee.

Never been IMAX hope it's worth it, going to watch GOTG2

Seen them both already (not in IMAX) and yeah they were both great. Would see them again in IMAX, but they're both on early afternoon, and I'm working till 3, so Dunkirk being 18:20 is the only one I can really see

(Well, there is IT after Dunkirk, but already saw that and don't think IMAX would add too much to it)

Going to Leicester Square? Is that ok?
Off to see Dunkirk, only seen it at home. Local LieMAX is still pretty good.
Thanks op. G of G booked!

If you're in screen 1 you're all set and it should be a pretty good imax experience, Enjoy your film!

How’s the imax at Hemel?
Hope the screens are better than the "IMAX" in Cambridge at the Light cinema. "We've made the screen slightly curved"....wow. Saw Balderunner 2049 at it and couldn't work out any way it was better whatsoever.

No, the Leicester Square Cineworld (ex-Empire) is not a real IMAX. It's still a good screen, although not as good as it was before they split it in two.

Yeah, I don't think Cineworld have any true IMAX screens, although I'm finding it difficult to find a good list of IMAX vs LieMAX screens for the UK.

The only true IMAX screens in the UK that I know of are the one in the London Science Museum, the BFI/Odeon one on Southbank and the Odeon one in the Manchester Printworks.

So while the Cineworld screens are nice and big, they probably won't have the extra height of a true IMAX screen for the 1.43:1 aspect ratio of any scenes that were shot in that.

I don't mind 3.70 for a big screen is still a good deal?
Don't forget Bradford Imax is one of the best in the country too but no cineworld Imax

£3.70 for any cinema is a good deal these days! For a nice big screen it's even better, and for the really nice screen 1 in Cineworld Leicester Square it's an absolute steal.
Its a great deal for IMAX.

I know it's not. Hence "pretty good"... It's better than a standard cinema screen for sure and uses a laser projector which brings its own benefits. The Empire screen is the widest imax screen in the country though just lacking the height for the true imax aspect ratio/70mm. For 95% of people they don't care or realise what the difference is hence not getting too technical or detailed about it. It's a couple of quid so regardless can't go wrong.

Beauty and the Beast is at 10am. Was going to take the 4 year old but that's way to early.
Good price but no good films imho

Why not use films that are truly must-see in cinemas? Star Wars, blade runner, etc

Dunkirk is an experience that's definitely worth a few quid. Enjoy.

I’m curious what the difference is. Could you go into detail please?
Must admit I prefer the Leicester Sq Imax to the Waterloo one...almost as big a screen and much more comfortable seating with more leg room.
Were going as family for all the screenings as we've not seen any of them...it's an 8.20 start right through to IT starting g 8.20 pm at ours! Madness

Mosrly true but the Leicester Sq. Laser IMAX is almost as good as the BFI 70mm IMAX IMO

dont worry it will be fine - not quite as good as the BFI eg its laser (digital) rather than 70mm so resolution isnt as high but still the next best IMAX experience after any 70mm ones like the BFI

So full fat IMAX typically uses 15Perf 70MM with an aspect ratio typically 1.43:1. Normal cinemas and films are usually 1.85:1 or 2.35:1. So IMAX provides a much taller image. The trouble is not all IMAX screens are equal. In this case I believe Manchester has a real 70MM projector with 1.43:1 screen as well as BFI IMAX. After the success of TDK IMAX decided to increase their sceen/chain count as much like Dolby, THX or 4k it was now a buzzword most people knew to mean something along the lines of better. So they did. Some normal screens were branded as IMAX aka LieMAX. The aspect ratio in some cases is only marginally taller than traditional screens or no different up to perhaps 1.89:1. Yet often the price charged for said screens with be higher due to IMAX branding. The projectors for 'real IMAX' can use 15perf 70MM film which has resolution up to 18k but usually used at 12k. Much higher than 2k cinema projectors or even 4k cinema projectors allowing you to sit much closer without loss of quality on the screen size. The other side of it is audio. True IMAX screens have custom designed audio solutions with 14 channels+. whereas some LieMAXs continue to use whatever was there previously such as 5.1, 6.1 or 6.2, it varies. Recently some IMAX's have been refit or updated to be closer to the real thing. Leicester square for example is pretty much as close as you get without going to the real one. The screen size, aspect ratio, audio are all much closer to IMAX than standard cinema. It also uses a laser projector rather than traditional bulb so colours, contrast and blacks are much improved (cinema equavilant of OLED vs LCD).

I just get this every time I choose a time: Sorry, we can't find the page! It might be an old link or maybe it moved.
seems to just be the Enfield booking
Wouldn't waste your time watching IT. Thought it was rubbish. Dunkirk is decent though.
