Prepare Your Eyeballs ‘Cos Sydney IMAX Is Now Open 7 Years After Closing

IMAX Sydney

Sydneysiders and visitors to the Harbour City now have another screen to watch films on, and it’s one of the largest in the world. Sydney IMAX reopened on October 11 in Darling Harbour after being shut since 2016.

The new 693-square-metre screen theatres use advanced technology that includes a 4K laser projection. Footage on the screen will now be brighter, in better resolution and in deeper contrast. The film’s sounds will also be crisper than before, thanks to a 12-channel setup.

The theatres will also include full recliners, couples lounges and even private pods, as part of a ‘Your Cinema, Your Way’ seating. Ahead of your film, you’ll be able to grab a bite to eat or something to drink during the film at a food marketplace within the IMAX complex.

Guests in box seats will have the option of grabbing a $49 custom meal, with your choice of starters, snacks, mains and desserts. If you’re not in a box seat or not feeling too peckish, you’ll be able to choose from snacks like fried chicken, Wagyu cheeseburgers or a pepperoni pizza. Drinks include beer and cider, ready-to-drink cocktails and wines.

Operated by entertainment and travel brand EVT, IMAX Sydney is located within The Ribbon at Darling Harbour. The 30-storey development also includes the 25-floor W Sydney, which opened this month and is the largest W Hotel to open in the world.

“We’re confident that this iconic venue will become a cultural landmark […],” says Giovanni Dolci, Chief Sales Officer at IMAX.

IMAX Sydney will show most new release movies, including, as of writing this, ‘Barbie’, ‘Oppenheimer’ and ‘Taylor Swift, The Eras Tour’. Adult price tickets will start at $38.
