Star Wars: The Force Awakens – The IMAX Experience in 2D (12A)

Screenings from 17 December

Entrance for screenings after 19.00 is the Dana Centre, 165 Queen's Gate, London SW7 5HD.

One of cinema’s truly legendary franchises finally returns to the big screen with the eagerly-awaited Star Wars: The Force Awakens. A new generation of heroes joins forces with legends Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia in the battle for the freedom of a galaxy far, far away.

The Science Museum’s IMAX Theatre is the only venue in Europe screening this blockbuster film in IMAX 15/70mm format. Sequences expand vertically to give viewers a truly immersive experience, filling the entire screen and displaying 40% more of the image than can be seen in standard cinemas.

We recommend booking early as demand is expected to be high.
