List Upcoming Event


The BFI IMAX is a 477-seat, state-of-the-art, large-format cinema on the South Bank. It was opened in 1999 and was made possible thanks to £15 million from the Arts Council of England's Lottery Fund.
Cinema features

* The UK's biggest cinema screen - more than 20 metres high (nearly the height of five double-decker buses) and 26 metres wide
* A 11,600-watt digital surround-sound system
* An IMAX projection system (the most sophisticated motion-picture projection system in the world).

Working together, these elements immerse viewers in larger-than-life images and ultra-realistic digital sound, making them feel as if they are literally "in the picture".
Cinema design and access

The auditorium features 14 tiered rows of seats that enable all viewers - even children - to enjoy full, unobstructed views of the picture.

The cinema is fully disabled-accessible, with eight wheelchair spaces and an induction loop for hard-of-hearing people.
