Tickets for the eagerly anticipated next instalment in the James Bond movie franchise, No Time to Die, are now on sale at the National Science and Media Museum’s Pictureville Cinema.
In the latest movie, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a quieter life in Jamaica. However, his peace is disrupted when an old friend needs his help, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
The film is the first ever instalment of the global James Bond franchise to be shot with IMAX film cameras. Film-maker Cary Joji Fukunaga captured select sequences of No Time to Die using IMAX’s extremely high-resolution 15/70mm film cameras to deliver IMAX audiences greater scope and breathtaking image quality. Only in IMAX theatres will audiences see the film the way it was creatively intended, as the scenes shot with IMAX film cameras will expand vertically to fill the screen, providing audiences up to 26% more of the image with unprecedented crispness, clarity, and colour.
Visitors to the National Science and Media Museum can experience the movie on the biggest screen in the region, the 60ft-tall IMAX, offering moviegoers a truly immersive experience.
Commenting on the latest instalment, David Burton, Cinema Commercial Manager, said:
“After waiting more than six years and working our way through all the hurdles cinema has faced during the pandemic, we are so excited to finally be bringing Bond back to the big screen. We know audiences have been eagerly anticipating this next chapter and there is no better way to experience No Time to Die than on IMAX as its director intended. From the trailer alone we can see that the action sequences are some of the best yet and we can’t wait for audiences to get immersed in the world of 007 on the biggest screen in the region.”
The National Science and Media Museum’s Pictureville Cinema boasts unrivalled facilities—three individual cinema theatres, the only public Cinerama screen outside the USA, and the ability to screen digital 4k, 35mm and 70mm, as well as IMAX 3D. For cinema lovers, Pictureville also offers a membership scheme which includes two free film tickets, £2 off cinema tickets, priority booking on selected films, and discounts on food, drink and the museum shop, all for just £30 a year.
The safety of visitors and staff is the top priority, and a number of measures will be in place to ensure a safe visit, including asking customers to book tickets in advance, hand sanitiser stations at key points such as entrances and exits, and enhanced cleaning of the theatres between screenings.
