Real to Reel

A Century of War Movies


A major exhibition that goes behind the scenes of some of this century's iconic war films that have captured the imagination of cinema-going audiences across the generations.

In the 100th anniversary year of the release of The Battle of the Somme film, this immersive new exhibition explores how film-makers have found inspiration in compelling personal stories and gripping real events from wars of the past century. Featuring some of the most celebrated and provocative war movies from across the decades, this exhibition shows how film-makers 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.
