Planning your excursion

IMAX has an extensive Film Library available for schools and our education program runs daily from 10am – 1pm during school term time. School bookings may be made up to 12 months in advance.

IT’S TEACHER’S CHOICE AT IMAX!

The Film Schedule is set by teachers, which means you can select the film, date and time of your preference, subject to availability. As a result, we encourage all teachers to book early to avoid disappointment.

THREE WAYS TO VISIT

1. Single Film
Classic IMAX documentaries run for 45 minutes, so allow around one hour for your visit to the Theatre. Feature films may be booked outside school hours*, and have varying run times.

2. Double Film Deal
Combine two IMAX documentary films in one day (with the same group of students) to create a cost-effective, full-day excursion. Teachers can choose the titles either back to back or with a 1 hour lunch break in between. It’s a great way to intensify study of one theme, like Antarctica, or create a cross curricular excursion.

3. Joint Excursion Package
To vary the activities on the day, we suggest a Joint Excursion with one of our nearby educational venues. This is great for creating a full-day themed excursion and options include The Powerhouse Museum and National Maritime Museum, plus many more.
