Tron (PG)

Outdoor Cinema at the Sculpture Court

This summer, we’re showing films where no cinema has gone before, with our first-ever outdoor, on-site cinema surrounded by the Barbican’s dramatic architecture.

Jeff Bridges stars in this landmark work in the history of computer animation; an innovative marvel that is still dazzling today.

Now the proprietor of a video arcade, software engineer and game developer Kevin Flynn (Bridges) used to work at animation corporation ENCOM – until he was ripped off by his colleague Ed Dillinger (David Warner).

Determined to expose the truth, Flynn breaks into ENCOM to find the stolen code. It's going well until he's spotted by Dillinger's security, the Master Control Program, and digitised and turned into a data stream, trapping him in the internal graphical world of computers. It's in this vivid, hyper-colourful grid that Flynn joins forces with the benevolent Tron to overpower the Master Control Program.
