Nomad Brings Classics To Classic Locations

The Nomad’s next major film series is immersive cinema at its finest. While many film lovers have seen Casablanca possibly many times over, the chance to see it in the atrium of the Imperial War Museum amongst original wartime artifacts and a Spitfire suspended overhead is a one-time opportunity.

With just a week until The Nomad’s Real To Reel Movie Nights at The Imperial War Museum London, James McAvoy’s Atonement costumes are being dusted off as, for the first time, Real To Reel: A Century Of War Movies, the IWM’s latest major exhibition, brings together a unique combination of film clips, costumes, props, scripts, sketches and designs, alongside original archival material and artefacts from IWM’s Collections.

One hundred years on from the most iconic early example of war on big screen – The Battle Of The Somme – IWM’s major exhibition and programme of evening events explore how war and conflict have been central to some of this century’s most popular movies.

The season will begin with Real to Reel Movie Nights Presented by The Nomad from Wednesday 2nd to Friday 4th November.

The late events offer visitors an exclusive chance to visit the major film exhibition and enjoy the unique experience of a film screening against the backdrop of IWM London’s dramatic Atrium. With a Spitfire suspended above, and other wartime artefacts in close proximity, visitors will be able to watch three iconic war movies: Atonement (2nd November), Casablanca (3rd November) and Full Metal Jacket (4th November) for a totally new experience of these much-loved films.
