It’s been 100 years since one of the earliest examples of war on the big screen and since then war and conflict have been the settings for many of last centuries most popular films, whether it is central to the film or a backdrop for a love story.
The Imperial War Museum is exploring this in their latest exhibition ‘Real to Reel: A Century of War Movies’ as well as hosting a series of events, which celebrates many of these films. This week will see the Real to Reel Movie Nights Presented by The Nomad.
It’s a chance to see three iconic war films: Atonement, Casablanca and Full Metal Jacket in the dramatic Atrium with a Spitfire suspended ahead. You’ll also be able to explore the exhibition which is made up of film clips, costumes, props, scripts, sketches and designs, after hours when the rest of the hordes have gone home.
There’ll be themed snacks at each screening and every ticket includes a glass of sparkling wine. It’s certainly going to be a cinema experience like no other…
Real to Reeel Movie Nights are taking place 2-4th November, the Real to Reel: A century of War Movies exhibition will be taking place until 8th January 2017
