The Pepsi IMAX Cinema was located on the top floor of the Trocadero Centre building on the Shaftesbury Avenue side. It was the first of London’s three IMAX cinemas and it opened on 17th December 1997.

It closed on 30th March 2000 with Walt Disney’s "Fantasia 2000". The space was converted into retail use. By 2008, it had been re-modeled into a new box office and foyer area for the Cineworld Shaftesbury Avenue multiscreen cinema, which is also located within the Trocadero Centre.

I don’t know the opening date but it was a little earlier than Ken has stated above. I watched “Thrill Ride” here 14 12 97.

I saw “New York in 3D” at the Pepsi IMAX on the 16/12/1997. I recall that it had just been opened, but I do not know the exact opening date.

It was an excellent IMAX cinema. Headsets with “active shutter” LCDs and the “binaural personal sound environment” system (via in-built mini speakers) were handed out for 3D performances. It seems that it closed not long after the opening of the BFI London IMAX.
