The Omni-Theatre, established in 1987, is Singapore’s only IMAX dome theatre. The 248-seat theatre is equipped with state-of-the-art IMAX technology which delivers the world’s most immersive experience. This is possible through the combination of specially-designed facilities (5-storey dome screen, seating configuration, digital sound system) and quality large format films (15perf/70mm). In January 2011, the Theatre upgraded its dome screen to the latest seamless NanoSeam screen, the world’s best projection surface offering unrivalled clarity. It is one of 32 such screens in the world and Asia’s largest. The theatre’s interior was also re-carpeted and seats re-upholstered.
The aim is to provide the best giant screen experience. The educational films offered cover genres such as science, space, nature, animals, marine life, culture, natural disasters and more. The Theatre received 288,000 visitors in FY2009/2010, out of which 50,000 are students and 238,000 are public. For the public visitor, there are mostly families with young children. In terms of profiling, about 50% are adults and 50% are children.
