The IMAX theatre at Darling Harbour is currently being rebuilt for an even better entertainment experience. The planned reopening is for late 2021.

IMAX theatres have always offered an incredible movie experience with their huge screens, multi-directional sounds and 3D movies. The LG IMAX theatre at Darling Harbour takes this technology to the most advanced level anywhere.

Watching a movie on the world's largest (approximately 30 metres high x 36 metres wide) cinema screen will really make you feel like you are right there in the action, especially when combined with 3D and the incredible IMAX sound system.

Sydney's IMAX has up to 6 show times every day, starting as early as 10:30am. Shows range from educational documentary style productions to animated 3D films and blockbuster Hollywood thrillers. Put a smile on everyone's face and treat yourselves to an unforgettable and highly immersive entertainment experience at Imax Darling Harbour!
