If you are looking for an out-of-the-world movie experience, I would recommend you to visit the Omni-Theatre located near Jurong East MRT Station. You can purchase your tickets at the Science Centre booth, and if you are interested you can get the Science Centre + Omni-Theatre package, because both places are worth a visit.

The interior of the Omni-Theatre is a huge dome, and be prepared for an extraordinary movie experience, usually lasting 40 mins or longer. Watch the things in the movie come to life right in front of your very own eyes, and there were so real that I've even seen some cheeky young boys reaching their hands out trying to touch the girls in the movie!

However, if you are unlucky enough to get a seat that forces you to raise your head up high throughout the whole movie, you're in for a bad time. Hence, my advice would be to visit the Omni-Theatre on weekdays before 6 pm, where there is lesser crowd.

I remember watching IMAX movies in the Omni-Theatre as a kid and I'd always leave the place with a sense of wonder and with the images of the movie still playing in my head.

After a long absence, of about 10 years, I was looking forward to it once again. Buying a cup of warm popcorn and settling myself into my soft cushioned seat, I eagerly awaited the start of the movie. As I looked around me, I realized that there were not that many people in there with me. Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, a feature on sharks. With the seats tilted back and the air-conditioning cool, I really enjoyed myself.

I hope to see more advertisements on the feature IMAX movies that Omni-Theatre as I feel they are due some publicity at least and more kids can enjoy this educational learning experience.

Fantastic experience

The Omni-Theatre specializes in showing documentaries in their IMAX theatre. You know you are in for a treat when you hear the word "IMAX", even if they do not show this summer's movie blockbuster, but documentaries instead. They change their documentaries every once in a while. It is a huge theatre, with comfortable plush seats and large all-round screen. The only complaint I have is that the leg space for some seats can be a little cramped even for a petite person like me, so a tall person have to practically fold him/herself to fit in.

Otherwise, it is a truly magical experience and even if you may not be one for educational movies, you should still visit the Omni-Theatre for the IMAX experience.

The Omni-theatre proffers a brilliant movie experience like no other - a splendourous meld of both education and entertainment. The movie is screened (get this straight) not on a screen, but on the dome structure of the theatre, enabling you to feel deeply immersed in the movie as you are shrouded by the stunning visuals.

The seats are comfortably titled back a little so you would not feel your neck aching. The downside to the seats however is that there might be little leg space. Another downside to the omni-theatre experience is that the content of the movie is mostly educational. So if you are looking more towards enjoying a movie purely for entertainment sake, you are definitely there for the wrong reason. That said, the visuals are compelling enough to make your money worth, just that after 20min, you might get bored.
