Dunkirk: The IMAX Experience in 15/70mm (12A)

Tickets on-sale soon
Screenings from 21 July

Starring Cillian Murphy, Kenneth Branagh, Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy and Harry Styles.

Award-winning director and modern-day pioneer of 70mm film, Christopher Nolan brings his unique vision to a defining moment in history.

From May 26 – June 4 1940 an extraordinary and unprecedented evacuation took place. Surrounded by the German army 400,000 Allied soldiers became trapped on Dunkirk beach following a fierce battle in World War II. From military vessels to tiny fishing crafts, more than 800 boats set sail from the shores of England in a desperate effort to save the troops. They couldn’t get home, so home came to them.

Join us at the Science Museum to experience the intense and breathtaking Dunkirk on one of the biggest screens in the UK. We recommend booking early as demand is expected to be high.
