We’re offering Curzon Members the opportunity to experience IWM London’s current landmark exhibition, Real to Reel: A Century of War Movies (until 8 January 2017), which goes behind the scenes of some of this century’s most iconic war films that have captured the imagination of cinema-going audiences for generations. Not only will you get a pair of tickets to the exhibition, but you’ll also get an overnight stay at ibis Styles London Southwark Rose hotel and a copy of Fifty Great War Films, a book celebrating fifty classic war films from the last century of filmmaking, and exploring how these timeless pieces of cinematography are the war memorials of modern society.
Real to Reel: A Century of War Movies is a unique exhibition from IWM London, which goes behind the scenes of some of this century’s most iconic war films that have captured the imagination of cinema-going audiences for generations.
Explore how film-makers have found inspiration in compelling personal stories and gripping real events from wars of the past century at Real to Reel: A Century of War Movies. See how filmmakers have used war’s inherent drama to translate stories of love and loss, fear and courage, triumph and tragedy into blockbusters for the big screen.
For the first time, the 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.
Spanning decades and featuring over 200 objects, the exhibition includes items from films such as The Dam Busters, Where Eagles Dare, Apocalypse Now, Battle of Britain, Das Boot, Casablanca, Jarhead, Atonement and War Horse.
Delve into the historic events and experiences that have inspired the movies: look at the man behind the myth in Lawrence of Arabia, through to the real events of D-Day which were vividly recreated in Saving Private Ryan.
