About Cosmonova

At Cosmonova you can enjoy a great, immersive and stunning experience. You can feel what it is like to be on the scene, in the midst of an adventure. The Cosmonova theater is unique, as is its technology.

Cosmonova with IMAX laser

Cosmonova is big, really big! Experience the giant 760sqm dome with surrounding image and sound. Crystal Clear IMAX Laser Projection: Increased resolution, sharper and brighter images, deeper contrasts, as well as the widest range of colors available to filmmakers to deliver the most life-like visuals for moviegoers.

Next Generation IMAX Precision Sound: Patented sound technology delivers striking clarity and depth alongside perfected tuned sound and evenly distributed audio throughout the theatre.

But what really makes Cosmonova so special? It’s not necessarily the technique itself, but how it visually transfers you to somewhere else.
