Here's the latest news from the IMAX theatre at Waterloo:

The Dark Knight: The IMAX Experience continues throughout August at the BFI IMAX - over 75,000 tickets have been sold to date - and we have our usual selection of 3D family films showing every day.

On Saturday 23 August, back for the second time after its sell-out screening last October will be The Bourne Trilogy, this month's After Dark All-Nighter.

Starting at 11.30pm will be The Bourne Identity followed by The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum. Matt Damon aficionados will also enjoy the bonus screening of Team America – World Police (!) As usual we’ll have free tea and coffee and prize giveaways between films, and snacks, sweets, soft drinks and alcohol on sale through the night, all adding up to a great atmosphere and a different kind of night out in town.

NB. All films will be shown in 35mm filling about 1/3 of the giant screen.

Details at the BFI IMAX website.
