The omni-max theatre is a cinema that gives you a truly all-rounded experience. The screen fills a three dimensional dome and you are brought right into the heart of the movie experience.

The first time I entered the omni-max theatre was in Primary school, when we went there on an excursion. I was terrified of the place! We sat at the seats that were the furthest back, and this also meant they were the highest up. It really is quite frightening for those that have issues with height (including me) so be mindful of this! The railings are very sparse so there’s nothing much to hold on to despite feeling your legs start to get slightly wobbly as you ascend to the higher seats. Hold your wits and reach the top for the most amazing experience.

The shows are pretty much meant for children, but are also enjoyable for adults. I especially like the ones where the camera dips down into the landscape from an aerial view. You can certainly feel the G-force here, and be careful not to fall out of your seat!

Prices are steep but overall, it’s worth the experience and great entertainment for the whole family.

The few times I've been to Imax, I was blown away every time. It's a magical experience, and for an hour or so, I would sit enthralled by whatever they were showing. The last time I went, I watched this short documentary about the underwater and I actually felt as if I were amongst the fishes.. it was amazing.

The only minor complaint I have is that if you get stucked in a lousy seating area (further in front), you might have a slight ache at your neck from looking upwards too much. Oh and the space for your legs to move around is sort of cramped so you might accidentally kick the seat in front of you which might result in angry stares (this has happened to me more than once).

The Omni-Theatre in Singapore boasts a massive dome screen - guranteed to provide you with the best huge screen experience ever.

I've recently revisited the Omni-Theatre for the movie 'Born to be Wild', and it's definitely mind-blowing. The massive dome screen is so huge, sometimes, you really don't know where to look! The characters in the movie, thanks to the big seamless screen, feels so life-size and alive, it felt as though we were part of the movie despite it being 2D! The latest screening is an undersea Coral Reef Adventure. I believe with the large screen, it will be an amazing way to learn about the beauty of the underwater world, without having to get wet yourself!

The IMAX movies are priced at $10 per adult and $7 per child. With an OCBC credit card, there is also a 20percent discount on the prices!

Recently, the Omni-Theatre has also introduced the 3D experience to some of its movies. I haven't had the chance to try that yet, but I'll definitely be keen! I heard that they will be playing some of the old Disney classics in 3D, like Beauty and the Beast!

Other than the IMAX movies, the Omni-Theatre also often have exhibitions and educational showcases from time to time.

The Omni-Theatre is located right next to both the Singapore Science Centre and Snow City, so if you are visiting either of the two attractions, why not give catch one of the 40-min long documentary at the Omni-Theatre? Not only are the documentaries educational, they are also very real and you will definitely be awestruck after the watching them!
