Tickets to watch one of the most critically-acclaimed films of the year could be yours for just £3 this weekend.
And it isn’t too good to be true, trust us.
In case you hadn’t heard, this Saturday 2 September is National Cinema Day, and lots of cinemas all across the UK have made the decision to slash the prices of tickets down to just £3 on some of the summer’s biggest blockbusters – including Barbie, Equalizer 3, Blue Beetle, and Elemental to name just a few.
But Hyde Park Picture House is taking things one step even further in a bid to give cinephiles a proper reason to celebrate with two showings of Oppenheimer at the slashed price.
Plus over in nearby, Manchester, the Vue cinema at the Printworks is going to be one of just 30 movie theatres around the world showing a special 70mm IMAX version of Christopher Nolan’s epic biographical film Oppenheimer? Well it is.
And this Saturday, for one day only, if you want watch it in this rare and unbelievably-special format, then you’ll only need to hand over £3 at the box office, according to The Manc.
Starring Cillian Murphy in the titular role of J. Robert Oppenheimer, Oppenheimer is the first film in cinema history to be shot on black and white IMAX cameras, and combines both IMAX 65mm and Panavision 65mm film, before being projected in the large-scale 70mm format.
It was a method created by the production crew specifically for this movie… that’s how special it is.
If Oppenheimer‘s not quite your bag though, and you’re looking for something a little lighter on a Saturday, then the National Cinema Day £3 offer is also the perfect chance for film fans to catch other recent releases and alternative screenings of Salvation! Have You Said Your Prayers Today?; Just Super; Passages and Jurassic Park.
