Located in the seaside town of Bournemouth, Hampshire, close to the pier. The IMAX was a controversial building from the start, as it was feared (later confirmed) that it would spoil the views onto the sea. It was built in the Spring of 1999, but had problems gaining an operator. It was fitted out with seats and a screen, but was still vacant in May 2001. There was talk of UCI cinemas taking it on and even the British Film Institute, who operated a successful IMAX cinema in London. The building also contained a restaurant, a bar and a nightclub, which were opened.
In January 2002, an IMAX projector was installed and the owners, Sheridan, hoped for an Easter opening. The Sheridan IMAX finally opened in March 2002.
By January 2003, the cinema was only open three days a week in the winter months. A local Councillor called for the building to be demolished. The Sheridan IMAX was closed for ‘repairs and refurbishment’ in February 2005, and never re-opened.
The building was demolished in March 2013.
