IMAX movies coming to Hong Kong Airport

Here’s a great idea: movies at airports.

Changi Airport – which has a butterfly garden, free Wi-Fi, a giant indoor slide, lounge chairs with built in alarm clocks and pretty must everything a traveler on a long layover could want – also has free movies theaters on site.

Open 24 hours, the movie screening area in Terminal 2 features movies available on the Fox Movies Premium website. The theater in Terminal 3 shows six different movies throughout the day. The line up right now includes Captain America, the Green Lantern, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Ice Age, Johnny English Reborn and Kung Fu Panda 2.

Coming soon: an IMAX theater at Hong Kong International Airport.

Scheduled to open this spring, this will be the first IMAX theater at an airport.

Admission will not be free. However, “Cinema-goers will be fulfilled by the extraordinary enjoyment when watching 2D or 3D movies,” the airport announced on Facebook.
