Unique experience

Omniversum is a wide-screen film theatre in The Hague that shows spectacular films on a giant domed screen which runs halfway around the audience. The size of the screen, combined with a sublime surround sound system, delivers the ultimate movie going experience.



This unique movie theatre is designed to transport you to another world. The big-screen films take you to space, where you can meet the astronauts of the International Space Station, and bring you face-to-face with the most fascinating scenery and creatures on Earth. And all without having to leave your seat. You don’t just watch a film, you become part of it!


The films are in Dutch but a special app lets you follow the original English-language version using your own mobile phone and headset. A new film starts every hour. The films are suitable for all ages, unless specified otherwise. Some young children may find the large screen and sound system rather overwhelming.

What a great experience and beautiful nature! It felt like I was there myself.


IMAX is derived from the French Canadian l'Image Maximum (Maximum Image). IMAX uses the largest film frame: 10 times larger than a 35 mm frame and 3 times larger than 70 mm. Each film image is 10 times larger than that of a normal cinema film and is increased 500 times!.

The film is projected by a fish eye lens using a 15,000 Watt Xenon lamp, which is water-cooled. The film goes through the projector at a speed of 100 meters per minute. A film of 45 minutes has a length of 4.5 km. and a weight of 100 kg.

A warm welcome and nice to sit and drink a cup of coffee before the film.

To make an Omniversum film, special IMAX cameras are used and can only record for 3 minutes. Making an IMAX film is a time-consuming project. On average, people spend around 2 years working on a film and production costs rise to 12 million euros. But it gives the visitors a special experience every time!
