From 19 July 2022, we will again be operating BFI IMAX, situated in London’s Waterloo and globally recognised as the UK’s most iconic cinema and at the forefront of technological and architectural innovation. 

After coming to the end of a successful 10-year concession agreement with ODEON, BFI IMAX will join BFI Southbank as a flagship BFI cinema venue in London. It will be fully operated and programmed in-house again by the BFI, continuing its relationship with IMAX to present audiences with the best formats possible via IMAX digital 4K projection and IMAX 15/70, the large format IMAX GT projection system.  

After a short period of closure, BFI IMAX will re-open its doors to audiences on 22 July 2022 with a programme that features some of the biggest and best films on release in the UK, as well as hosting major film premieres and continuing its education programme. From early July, ticket bookings can be made for Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder for screenings taking place from Friday 22 July via our IMAX page. Bullet Train and Nope will screen in August 2022.

BFI IMAX will undergo a major re-launch later in 2022. The new vision and plans for the venue will be announced in the autumn.
