In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated.
Dunkirk is an exceptional piece of cinema that demands to be seen on the big screen. Christopher Nolan has produced his most accomplished film to date, utterly engrossing and inspirational. It is hailed as an unmissable filmmaking masterpiece by critics.
Christopher Nolan shot this film in 70mm, which requires a change to the projector and screen settings to show this film at its best.

So sit back and enjoy this extraordinary film in the way Christopher Nolan intended, here at The Regal.
