The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Rating: 3/5

Spider-Man has always been the people’s superhero. He’s a high-school dweeb whose supernatural powers allow him to fight crime but don’t offer him any help at all in dealing with the everyday problems of being a teenager. Girls, friends, parents, aut...

Godzilla

Let’s face it, Roland Emmerich’s 1998 reboot of the Japanese monster series didn’t exactly set the world on fire (in either sense). So here’s a chance to get back to the roots of what Godzilla is all about: less chatty-chatty, more smashy-smashy. And...

Journey To Mecca

Rating: 2/5

One suspects that this gigantiscope outing is the closest the majority of non-Muslims will ever get to seeing Mecca up close. It took 87 permits to allow the 85-strong IMAX team special access to this most sacred monument and, for the viewer, the fin...

Under the Sea 3D

Rating: 4/5

Howard Hall’s sub-aquatic 3D trip opens with one of the most effective IMAX sequences yet: a static shot of a calm lagoon so lifelike you might feel the urge to dip your toes. Then the camera dives beneath the surface and we’re presented with a kalei...

This should be a great cinema. But it isn't. Finding the entrance is the first challenge. Buying tickets is generally easy and there is a self serve option. But then you have to trek upstairs and you get let in at the bottom of the cinema. You climb interminable steps to get to your seat. The seats themselves are uncomfortable for any length of film except 20 minutes. So not much good then. The only decent seats are at the very top of the auditorium for which you pay a premium. The exit at the end of the film requires you to go up to the back of the auditorium and then take endless winding stairs down. There is a lift if you are clever enough to find it. The loos on the same level as the top of the auditorium are small and over crowded. I have been there for blockbusters and for opera. The screen is great, but not worth the extra cost or discomfort.
