Michelle Lockhart, Science Museum Group Commercial Director, said: “In the Science Museum’s IMAX Theatre, we can offer audiences a uniquely immersive experience of this highly-anticipated new release. We’re excited to be presenting Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in Europe’s only 70mm 2D film print, giving visitors the highest-quality cinema experience of a sci-fi epic in a Museum where the stories of humanity’s greatest scientific endeavours are told.”
The film tells the story of a group of unlikely heroes bands together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
