Comparing Melbourne’s two IMAX theatres

When people in Melbourne think of IMAX theatres, the massive screen at the Melbourne Museum in Carlton should come to mind. I can still remember my first visit when I was about 10 years old: making my way down the longest escalator I had ever seen, to see a screen so big it filled my entire field of view. But what other other other so-called ‘IMAX’ theatres in Melbourne?

Hoyts ‘CineMotion’ theatre at Highpoint

Over the weekend I was digging around the house and came across a voucher from 1997, giving the bearer $1 off a ticket for the Hoyts ‘CineMotion’ motion simulator ride at their Highpoint multiplex. Fifteen years later the Hoyts cinema at Highpoint still exists, but there is no trace of the ‘CineMotion’ ride – so what was it?
