Cineworld’s line-up for the festival sees movie favourites selected by local film fans brought back to the big screen at Sheffield for one day only.

Other winning selections include space epic and Academy Award winner Gravity, as well as 2016 Oscar ‘Best Picture’ nominee Mad Max: Fury Road. And as a special exclusive, due to popular demand, The Martian will also be screening in IMAX with laser for the first time ever in the UK.

Cinema fans can book tickets for the film of their choice for the fantastic price of £3 per screening.

Karen Godfrey, General Manager of Cineworld Sheffield, said “It’s no surprise that Jurassic World has been chosen as the film the people of Sheffield would most love to bring back to the big screen in IMAX with laser – it was one of the biggest films of 2015 and we know lots of people are dying to have a chance to see it in IMAX with laser again!
