Watch a film on Britain's biggest screen

There are a lot of big budget films around at the moment which suggest you watch them on a big screen, in 3D, and there is no better place in London to do this than the BFI Imax in Waterloo.

Completed in 1999, the cinema has the largest screen in the UK at 20m by 26m, and a seating capacity of around 500. Avatar is probably the big draw at the moment but it is pretty much booked up for a while. Never mind, however as there are other films on offer and the trailers look a bit rubbish.

Tickets are £13.50 or £15 for the best seats, which isn't too bad really. For more, see http://www.bfi.org.uk/whatson/bfi_imax

  1. Or, just around the corner, watch a film in one of the country's smaller cinemas, NFT3. My friend, Princess Sarah, says that sitting in the front row feels like a more intimate version of IMAX (especially if the onscreen extravaganza is 'Can't Stop The Music'). Just got in from seeing 'The Red Shoes' there; lovely, lovely.

    Having said that, the IMAX is pretty special; the Bond films there last summer were breathtaking. Got tickets in the 'posh' seats for 'Avatar' next week, and I am taking along an open mind...
