Back To The Future at Bristol Museum

Friday 11th September | Doors: 18:35 | Film Start: 19:00 | Approx End: 20:50

Step inside Bristol Museum & Art Gallery for your very own “Night at the Museum” this March! Enter this magnificent space after hours and explore a selection of the galleries pre-show, enjoy our live performers and then take your seat in the Rear Hall to watch the film among the exhibits. There’s also an opportunity to visit the Museum’s temporary exhibition for a small additional fee (see below – please note that numbers are limited per screening).

We’ve rescheduled our Spring screenings for a weekend of events this September, starting off Friday’s Time Travel theme with the 80s blockbuster Back To The Future.
