Registration has opened for a special screening of Dunkirk at the Science Museum.
Christopher Nolan’s latest epic will be shown in IMAX 70mm 2D film – the largest commercial film format – at the South Kensington museum from its worldwide opening weekend.
The Science Museum is one of only three venues in the UK showing the film in this way - the revered filmmaker’s preferred format.
IMAX 70mm film projection combines the brightest, clearest images at almost 10 times the resolution of standard 35mm film projection, with specially created sound for a high-quality viewing experience.
Nolan, who directed the film from his own original screenplay, has often used IMAX film to create for his audiences a sense of the epic worlds in which the drama of his films can unfold.
For Dunkirk, more footage was shot on IMAX film than in any other Nolan movie, with extensive use of IMAX cameras in an innovative hand-held capacity.
Michelle Lockhart, Science Museum group commercial director, said: "In the Science Museum’s IMAX Theatre, audiences will enjoy a uniquely immersive experience of Christopher Nolan’s highly-anticipated new release.
"Following the success of our Interstellar screenings here, we’re excited to present Dunkirk in 70mm 2D film, giving visitors the highest-quality cinema experience of this remarkable story, at an independent cinema within an iconic UK attraction."
What is the film about?
Dunkirk opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces.
Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea, they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.
