The Science Museum IMAX Theatre is now closed for major refurbishment until summer 2020

Reopening in summer 2020, the new IMAX: The Ronson Theatre will be one of only two screens in Europe to feature the very best of digital and analogue cinema side by side, allowing us to screen newly released blockbusters, 3D educational films and cinema classics.

Joining our much-loved 15/70mm IMAX film projector will be a new 4K laser projector, giving you the rare opportunity to view the cult favourite format and the latest in immersive IMAX technology all on one screen.

If you want to be among the first to hear when our fully revamped IMAX re-opens and what we will be screening, sign up below.


An IMAX film is a visual experience so real—whether 2D or 3D—it will make you feel part of the action. The  exceptional high-resolution cameras and post-production enhancement process delivers breathtaking images and superior sound.

Enjoy heart-pounding audio, awe-inspiring images and immersive 3D shots on a screen the size of four double-decker buses.
