The British Film Institute, the most prestigious organisation in the U.K, devoted to The Seventh Art, screened a preview of "Dunkirk" on Thursday July 13, in the NFT.

Following a season of personally selected and curated 35 and 70mm film classics, which have influenced the work of Christopher Nolan; "Dunkirk", the most eagerly anticipated and hyped film of the year was finally screened to a sell out audience at the British Film Institute on July 13 at 20:30.

This special preview of "Dunkirk" was introduced by Christopher Nolan himself, hot foot from the Royal World Première at the Odeon Leicester Square and flanked by his co-producer and spouse, Emma Thomas and BFI Grand Dame Heather Stewart.

Then it began. Our eyes were truly opened, and for added authenticity, the sound was turned up to a furious volume and pitch. My colleague Mark Trompeteler has written a comprehensive review of this 5 perforation 70mm presentation. My review will be based on the 15 perforation full IMAX screening.
