Blade Runner 2049

The long awaited sequel to the pillar of sci-fi, Blade Runner 2049, comes to BFI IMAX

For fans of the 80’s cult classic Blade Runner, this particular sequel has been a long time coming, but the wait is finally over. Taking audiences back to the dark future in which the original classic was set, new blade runner ‘Officer K’ is introduced, and his search for Rick Deckard, who disappeared 30 years previously. After discovering a secret that could obliterate what is left of society, and watching the world around him decay slowly, K hunts for the only person who may be able to help him.

Starring, Ryan Gosling, Jared Leto and Harrison Ford – who reprises his iconic role from the first film – it looks set to be another great look into a dystopian cyberpunk future.

Discover BFI IMAX

Seeing a film at the BFI IMAX is like nothing else - digital surround sound, a screen almost as high as five double-decker buses, 489 seats (including 69 premier seats), and that's just inside the auditorium.  The giant glass drum of the BFI IMAX, London's (in fact, the UK's) largest state-of-the-art cinema, boasts a 20m by 26m cinema screen and a sound system of over 12,000 watts.

It was originally designed by Bryan Avery Architects and completed in 1999. The venue as won a number of prestigious awards at the time of opening, including a Design Council Millennium Product Award in 1999 and a Civic Trust Award in 2000. BFI IMAX is owned by the British Film Institute and since July 2012 it has been operated by ODEON Cinemas.

Although the IMAX has an underground line just four metres below, it is totally sound and vibration-proof, with the entire upper structure sitting on anti-vibration bearings. Film lovers book tickets and travel from across Europe for the immersive experience of the latest blockbuster or classic re-release.

There's also a Costa Coffee, Yog, a bar and even a beer garden! The very latest IMAX films, some old favourites and highlights from ODEON Plus as well as educational films all add up to a really big experience.
