Movie Nights at the Museum



The next season of Movie Nights will go on sale in autumn 2017. Check back for new dates.

Movie Nights at the Museum brings you classic movies in a classic location - and the low-down on the real science beyond the director's chair. 

Each film has been chosen for its connection to an area of our expertise. Before you get comfortable for the full film, you’ll watch a brief, pre-recorded discussion between one of our scientists and an editor from host partner Time Out. 

We kick off this movie season with ocean-inspired cinema to celebrate the arrival of the magnificent blue whale in the Museum's iconic Hintze Hall, the venue for this series.

So get your popcorn, take your seat, and settle in for Movie Nights at the Museum.
