If you want the best cinema experience available, IMAX is the way to go. You’re looking at the biggest screen (up to six stories tall), with incredible sound and picture quality that will leave your jaw on the floor.

IMAX uses a laser projection system that produces clearer images than any other theater in Qatar, making it feel more immersive than other forms of entertainment—cinema or otherwise.

In addition to being able to see movies in 3D, IMAX offers its own 4DX format which combines motion seats with wind, water and scent effects designed specifically for each movie.

Cinema chains offering IMAX experience:

Price: IMAX 2D – 55 – 90 QAR per person



4DX is a technology that provides sensory effects such as wind, water, fog, lightning, and scents. There are currently over 200 4DX theaters with more than 5 million seats across the globe.

The experience of watching a movie in 4DX cinema will take you to an entirely different world where you can feel all the effects happening on screen—wind blowing on your face or water pouring over your hands.
