Millennium Point announces immersive cinematic screenings

Iconic films coming to the (very) big screen.

Millennium Point has announced two new unique and immersive film screenings coming to its incredible big screen this autumn.

The Birmingham-based venue’s Auditorium (formerly the IMAX cinema) will show two iconic movies, offering film buffs the perfect night out, with fan-favourites Ghostbusters and Back to the Future coming to the big screen. Both screenings will include a host of drinks served throughout and movie trivia, in partnership with The Wine Events Company.

Visitors can celebrate Halloween in style on Friday 30th October with classic 80’s movie Ghostbusters, with The Wine Events Company offering several themed cocktails while guests enjoy the film. The team will be on hand to serve four delicious cocktails throughout the evening and there will also be live cocktail-making demos and fun movie trivia, creating a one-of-a-kind, immersive experience.

The Wine Events Company then returns to Millennium Point in November with a screening of the iconic movie, Back to the Future, celebrating its 35th birthday. Tickets include five glasses of wine which will be served during the film, with wine buff Tony Elvin carefully selecting five tipples for guests to enjoy.

Tony Elvin of The Wine Events Company, said: “We are very excited to team up with Millennium Point and bring our theatrical ‘movie with drinks’ experiences to such a stunning venue. Being able to deliver an event with plenty of social distancing space is fantastic for everyone and means they can truly relax and have a bit of fun.”

The award-winning events team at Millennium Point has introduced a number of measures to ensure that the socially distanced screenings are safe for all to enjoy. These include reduced capacity in the auditorium from 354 to 181, with all seats allocated beforehand, as well as hand sanitising stations throughout the venue.

Rebecca Delmore, commercial director at Millennium Point, said: “The launch of our socially distanced cinema has been such a success, that for the next series of films we wanted to take it one step further and really offer our visitors something new and unique to enjoy.

“We’ve teamed up with the brilliant Wine Events Company to create two really exciting events, unlike anything we’ve done before. We hope to offer people something different to enjoy this autumn and we look forward to welcoming guests to Millennium Point.”
