Oscar® Week 2018

On-sale dates and times
Oscar Week 2018 at the Barbican

Catch up on the biggest films of the year in one glamorous week and see all the Best Picture nominees, in celebration of the 90th year of the Academy Awards.

Awards season is upon us, so we’re rolling out the red carpet and getting ready to celebrate some of the biggest films of the year with a special cinema experience. 

For one week only, we’re screening all of the films nominated for Best Picture, along with a showing of all the nominated Live Action Shorts.

Maybe there’s a film you missed first time around, or perhaps you just want to see what all the fuss is about? 

Whatever your reason, get ready to walk up the red carpet, settle down with a cool glass of prosecco and enjoy the film of your choice. 

Plus, get the chance to win a red carpet experience by entering our competition; entries open until 12 noon, Wednesday 21 February. 


In partnership with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
