Back on Britain's biggest screen once again by popular demand, catch Christopher Nolan's acclaimed blockbuster at the BFI IMAX in South Bank.

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning biography American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of Robert Oppenheimer, Nolan’s film stars Cillian Murphy, in his sixth collaboration and first leading role with the filmmaker. The film dominates this year's Oscars race with a whopping 13 nominations, including Best Picture, Director, Actor, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress.

Robert Oppenheimer was the ‘father of the Atomic Bomb’. Seen as a hero to many, within a few years Oppenheimer would be vilified as a turncoat and a threat to his country.

Co-starring a host of Hollywood A-list stars including Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr, Emily Blunt and Florence Pugh, Nolan's film looks at the daring race to build the first nuclear weapon, Oppenheimer's challenging personality and turbulent personal life and the the efforts to destroy the world-leading physicist's reputation in the years following the war.

This is the first IMAX film to be shot in both colour and black and white and there is arguably no better place to enjoy this extra special 70mm cinematic experience than at the UK’s biggest screen, the BFI IMAX.
