The programme ends at approximately 6.50am.

There will be a 30-minute break between each film and free teas and coffees will be provided throughout the night to help everyone stay awake; prize draws during the evening will all be part of the fun. Snacks, sweets and soft drinks will be on sale.

It is the largest cinema screen in the UK. This, together with the 12,000-watt digital surround-sound system and the most sophisticated motion-picture projector in the world, immerses audiences in larger-than-life images and ultra-realistic sound, whether the film is in 2D, 3D or IMAX® DMR™.
