We (2 adults, 3 kids) saw an Omni Max movie on Polar Bears in the Arctic. The viewing experience was spectacular. Audio quality and seats were very good too. The smell of food brought in by other viewers was a bit of a distraction (allowing food in probably needs to be stopped by the management - it's a 40 minute... More

Forget IMAX. This is still the biggest screen and visual feast in Singapore since I was a kid over 20 years ago. It used to be free seating, but they have improved on the system by having allocated seats these days. No more long queues at the entrance caused by people trying to get the seats They seem to show... More

The Omni theater has shows exclusively which are more of educational types or documentaries. They are of a 40 minute duration and are good to watch. The topics are various and you could check them on their website or inquire in advance once you are there. The theater is almost all empty on most of the days and it shouldn't... More

Good science-based shows and not as crowded as when it first started, unless a school group is also there. Large IMAX screen makes for good, breathtaking viewing. Caution if you suffer from motion sickness though.
