As part of this month’s Maths-themed Lates, join us for a one-off screening of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar in IMAX 70mm, preceded by a discussion between the Science Museum’s Director of External Affairs Roger Highfield, Science Museum Fellow of Modern Science Harry Cliff and Interstellar’s Oscar-winning Visual Effects Supervisor Paul Franklin.

Roger is a noted science writer and the co-author of the acclaimed biography The Private Lives of Albert Einstein. Harry is a particle physicist at Cambridge and the Large Hadron Collider.

Covering space, time, gravity, black holes and the origin and fate of the universe, scientists are still grappling with its implications a century after its publication.

Interstellar is based on the theories of physicist Kip Thorne, one of the world’s leading experts on the astrophysical implications of Einstein’s theory. A mindbending sci-fi epic, the film follows a team of explorers on the most important mission in history, as they journey through a wormhole in space in a desperate attempt to save humanity.

£15 – over 18s only (Join the Mars Society and receive your exclusive discount of this and other events!)

Why see it at our IMAX Theatre?

  • Director Christopher Nolan designed and captured Interstellar for true 70mm IMAX film viewing, meaning you’ll see 40% more film image on our screen than on those found at large cinema chains that use digital IMAX technology
  • Our screen is one of the largest in the UK. It’s almost double the size of those found at large cinema chains, measuring 16.8m from floor to ceiling and 24.3m from wall to wall. That’s the height of four double-decker buses or a car park for 64 taxis
  • Experience 10 times the image quality, resolution and sound than you would at a conventional digital cinema, making you feel like you’re part of the action
