About IMAX

Our IMAX theatre has an illustrious history. In 1983, it took Bradford by storm when it became the first IMAX to be opened in Europe; it’s still the biggest screen in the region. With state-of-the-art digital projection and a plush premium seating area, IMAX is the ultimate way to experience the movies—right in the heart of Bradford, UNESCO City of Film.
