Science and Media Museum

Widescreen Weekend is a unique festival of large-screen formats and cinema technologies celebrating the past, present and future of film. 

Enjoy a long weekend of big, bold and wide cinema experiences as we showcase the museum’s fantastic projection facilities. Glorious 70mm screenings, new Cinerama restorations and great guests will remind you why going to the movies is so magical.

Widescreen Weekend 2017

This year’s festival took place on 12–15 October 2017, and was bigger and better than ever before as we expanded the festival to include all three of the museum’s cinemas. We screened films made between 1957 and 2017 in 35mm, 70mm, Cinerama and IMAX, and welcomed special guests ranging from a rising star of student filmmaking to a BAFTA-winning costume designer.
