Night At The Museum

Night At The Museum at Bristol Museum

Saturday 12th September | Doors: 18:30 | Film Start: 19:00 | Approx End: 20:50

After having to reschedule our Spring Screenings this year, we’re returning to Bristol Museum & Art Gallery this Autumn for two nights of historical thrills and spills. Enter the museum after hours, enjoy live performers – including the return of our resident animatronic dinosaur! – and explore a selection of the Museum’s incredible exhibitions, including the ever-popular Egypt Gallery. 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).

The festival is turning 5 this year, so we’re revisiting our very first screening at the Museum by bringing the family adventure Night At The Museum back to the big screen, in the shadow of Bristol Museum’s very own dinosaur.
