Located just beside the popular Science Centre, the Omni-Theatre is Singapore's only IMAX dome theatre. The cinema features crystal clear images and wraparound digital surround sound. Films and thrill-ride simulations are shown on a huge 5-storey dome screen which envelopes you on your reclining seat, far exceeding your field of vision. The experience is made even more unforgettable by the fidelity of the surround sound system.
This massive cinema presents short but utterly immersive show in quality large format films, with a wide range of genres, including science, space, nature, animals, marine life, culture and natural disasters. Perforations in the screen allow both sound and air-conditioning to pass through to the audience
Beyond the cinema, check out the space science exhibitions and gifts shop. The complex is also home to an observatory and omniplanetarium, and is one of the few observatories in the world located close to the Equator. Hence, constellations in both the northern and southern celestial hemispheres can be observed from here. The Observatory is open to the public for free star-gazing sessions on Friday nights from 7:50pm to 10pm.
