The Omni-theatre is located beside Science Centre. I went there to enjoy a fun-filled activity with my girl-friend and we purchased the Omni-theatre tickets, Snow City and Science Centre entrance tickets as a package because I find that it is more worthwhile.
Omni-theatre is basically a theatre with gigantic movie screen that stretches from one end of the theatre to another. It is rounded so it feels that you are not only watching the movie, but actually in it. Do be careful with the stairs as it is quite a climb and is considerably steep. The seats are just like any ordinary movie theatre seats. We managed to get decent seats in the middle and there were only a few of us there as we visited this place during the weekdays. The movie experience was incredible. We watched this documentary about wildlife preservation and we felt like we were just inches away from the real thing. The movie is normally an hour long.
In conclusion, a great place to consider exploring if you are bored of the normal Orchard Road shopping and movie screenings. Plus, it is very near Jurong East Mrt thus it is quite accessible.

Unlike the conventional movie theatre, the Omni Theatre gives one an one of a kind screening experience. The concave design of the connecting walls and ceiling allows viewers to feel like they are in the show/documentary without the need for annoying over sized 3D glasses.

The area of projection is all the way from the ceiling to the surrounding walls, allowing the viewers to have the best seat in the theatre no matter where they are seated.

Although the experience was surreal, the image were so huge that it makes it hard to see the full picture of what was going on most of the time. On top of that, 1 hour sitting with your neck up is not very pleasant.
