From the Official www.TomCruise.com:
Well, there’s going big, and then there’s going for the biggest. Is this an impossible mission? Dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun…(by the way, that’s supposed to be the theme song for ‘Mission: Impossible,’ for those who can’t read music, ha ha.)
The Buckinghamshire Advertiser in the UK reports that Pinewood Studio is going for broke for its new drive-in season and attempting to break a world record for the (literally) biggest film showing by showing Tom Cruise’s ‘Mission: Impossible‘!
Pinewood Studios, located in Pinewood Road, Iver Heath, is hosting a drive-in movie series and transforming its facilities into the world’s largest cinema screen. Organizer Paul Wigfield said that not only is the filming a chance to demonstrate the newest projection technology, but also that, “Mission: Impossible seems the perfect choice to beat the existing world record and it will look absolutely sensational.”
Part of ‘Mission: Impossible‘ was filmed here, so it’s only fitting that they should screen the Cruise blockbuster hit and try to best Norway and Japan, both of which have hosted the largest film screenings ever: the Oslo Spektrum showed ‘Independence Day’ in 1996 on a 40.24-meter screen, while the Tokyo premiere of ‘Speed Racer’ in 2008 was projected on a 37-meter wide IMAX screen.
If you live nearby the studios, you can get tickets at seetickets.com and head over on Saturday, November 7 at 4:45pm. Or, if you can’t make the screening, Pinewood Studios will be showing other great movies during their winter Drive-In series, including the Tom Cruise drama ‘Eyes Wide Shut,’ directed by Stanley Kubrick, and other Kubrick films, such as ’2001: A Space Odyssey’ and ‘Full Metal Jacket.’
