IMAX Sydney is back open – with the third largest screen in the world

IMAX Sydney closed for a rebuild back in 2016, and after a longggg wait, it's finally relaunched in October 2023, better than ever, in the W Sydney building.

When we say this is huge news, we mean it. IMAX Sydney’s new movie screen is the third largest in the world, spanning a staggering 693 square metres.

While most cinemas rely on digital projectors, IMAX Sydney is going all out with a state-of-the-art 4K laser projection system. This means that the screen will practically pop with brighter images, more vivid colours and crystal-clear resolution. Plus, the sparkly new cinema will boast an impressive 12-channel sound system, meaning you will be able to feel the action run through your bones. 

Audiences can kick back and watch the magic unfold in one of the 430 spacious seats, with the option to upgrade to a full recliner, cosy couples recliner, or private pod for parties of four. Who could forget the good old candy bar too? IMAX is pulling out all the stops with a marketplace of all your favourite cinema snacks, and it’s bound to make all your childhood dreams come true. 

You can book tickets for IMAX Darling Harbour over here.
