The world’s biggest and most famous film magazine Empire has launched Empire Live, a two day and three night film and entertainment spectacular at the O2 Arena.
Hosted at the O2 arena from the 23rd to the 25th September, the event will include premieres, first-look screenings, specially curated bills, masterclasses and pop-up parties.
Film fans will have an opportunity to see world class actors and film makers introducing screenings, run workshops and attend events.
So far, confirmed content includes a special screening of Richard Linklater’s latest, Everybody Wants Some!!, and a series of screenings in partnership with purveyor of cinematic masterpieces The Criterion Collection. There will also be a live version of the award-winning Empire Film Podcast.
Editor-In-Chief of Empire magazine Terri White said: “There is quite simply no event in the world right now like Empire Live. Whether you’re a cult film junkie, an animation addict or a blockbuster lover, there will be something for everyone at our spectacular weekend of live events. With world-class actors and directors joining us at The O2, no other brand or event can bring you closer to the world of movies and entertainment. Strap yourselves in, and get ready for the weekend of your life.”
Empire Live will take over the entire O2 space, including events at the Cineworld at The O2, The Piazza and Brooklyn Bowl, in a weekend of exclusive screenings, short films, live events and specially curated programming by film experts.
The Brooklyn Bowl will become the social and hangout space for the event as well as bringing the magazine to life including a love podcast and movie quiz. More events such as the nightly parties in the space have yet to be confirmed.
Tickets for Empire Live will go on sale on Friday 29th April. For more information visit: http://www.empireonline.com/live/.
