The former Bristol IMAX (Bristol Aquarium)

The former Bristol IMAX originally opened in 2000 as a feature of Wildwalk (part of the At-Bristol science centre) and is now used as an occasional events space by the Bristol Aquarium, most notably for the Forbidden World Festival.

The large auditorium still retains the impressive 19m x 15m screen to create the ultimate visual experience. When attending the festival, please use the entrance on Anchor Road.

Wheelchair users, or anyone requiring step-free access can access the auditorium via a lift. If you have specific access requirements, or require seating in a specific location, please contact us directly at info@watershed.co.uk and we will do our best to accommodate.

There are 22 steps up to the shop from Colston Avenue and 25 steps down to the shop from Colston Street. There is a loading bay at the bottom of the Christmas Steps on Colston Avenue which can be used as a handy parking space to drop-off or pick-up movies from the shop.
