A must stop-over on any visit to Science Centre Singapore, this five storey dome-shaped cinema will immerse even the most cynical in an exceptional movie experience, complete with with crystal-clear digital surround sound and enveloping images.

Managed by Science Centre Singapore, it was established in December 1987 and furnished with IMAX technology to produce a one of a kind movie experience enjoyed in reclined seats.

Education films, lasting about 40 minutes, are screened in this 276-seater cinema such as Bears and Imax Under The Sea, at the time of writing. Past fims include one about dinosaurs and another about the life of Leonardo Da Vinci.

Omni-Theatre is a popular school-trip destination and may be crowded with hyper-excited and relatively rowdy school groups in the afternoons. Best if you show up in the mornings or call to check the schedule.

Stargazing lovers should also consider popping by the Omni-Theatre on Fridays from 7.50pm to 10pm in the evenings as free stargazing sessions are organized at The Observatory located within the vicinity. Catch a view of the various constellations as well as planets such as Mars to Jupiter depending on the month of your visit.

A distinctive IMAX movie experience created by a dome-shaped screen and fully digital surround sound, not found elsewhere in Singapore.
