National Science and Media Museum

Widescreen Weekend 2017 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 our special guests ranged from a rising star of student filmmaking to a BAFTA-winning costume designer.
