Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers: Age of Ultron
  • 2015
  • US
  • 141 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joss Whedon
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, James Spader, Samuel L. Jackson

Ultron, an artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark (Downey Jr) to keep the peace, goes rogue and decides to kill off the Avengers. Barely logical but impressively entertaining superhero fun; Johansson and Olsen are central to the action and Whedon's script is strong, snappy and irreverent, but it doesn't have much emotional impact.

IMAX

The Glasgow Cineworld IMAX was the first of its kind north of the border, and it received a major upgrade in 2013. The new 62' x 82' screen is the biggest cinema screen in Scotland, and a new digital projection system allows a larger variety of content to be screened, from the newest blockbusters to educational material supporting the Glasgow Science Centre's schools programme. A Starbucks has been added, with views across the Canting Basin. In the future, Cineworld plans to install its next-generation laser digital projection system.

The nearest train station is Exhibition Centre (Argyle Line), located across the river on the other side of SECC – cross the motorway using the covered walkway. Cessnock subway station is just under a mile away on Cessnock Street, south of Festival Park.

The nearest bus stops are First Bus 90 on Paisley Road West; McGill's 23 & 26 on Pacific Drive; and the City Sightseeing tour bus on Pacific Quay.

Public car parking is available at Concert Square car park, opposite the cinema, or you can use the GSC pay car park (£3/day.) For sat nav, enter the postcode: G51 1EA.
