The world's biggest movie magazine comes to The O2Empire has revealed a full slate of extraordinary events taking place at the hotly anticipated American Airlines Presents Empire Live. A series of exclusive screenings, filmmaker Q&As and family programming has been added to the action-packed bill.
Fantasy juggernaut Game Of Thrones continues to push the boundaries of small screen drama, and the penultimate episode was the undisputed highlight of the sixth season as Jon Snow finally went toe-to-toe with arch enemy Ramsay Bolton. Television lovers will now have the chance to catch the epic episode on the big screen in Empire Live’s special one-off screening.
The Family Entertainment programme has been finalised with a number of animated hits joining the bill. Beyoncé, Stevie Wonder and Justin Timberlake have all sung at The O2 – and now fans can add their name to the illustrious list, with audiences young and old expected to belt out the likes of Let It Go and Do You Want To Build A Snowman? during the Frozen Sing-Along. And 30 years since Luxo Jr. first put John Lasseter and his merry band of animation geniuses on the road to world domination, Empire Live presents an animation marathon of all 17 Pixar Shorts.
Finally, Empire’s Editor-In-Chief Terri White has assembled an all-star panel of filmmakers for the Women On Screen panel taking place in The Empire Hub. Belle director Amma Asante is confirmed for an event that promises expert insight into filmmaking, the industry from a female perspective, spirited debate and a whole lot of inspiration.
The Empire team will also be setting up camp in the heart of Brooklyn Bowl as The Empire Hub sees the magazine come to life with a series of panels and onstage interviews — in addition to live recreations of popular in-magazine interview segments My Movie Mastermind and How Much Is A Pint Of Milk? (complete with live interviewees on stage), attendees can sit in on a live instalment of the Empire Film Podcast and test their mettle at Empire’s Ultimate Live Movie Quiz (the most competitive film quiz known to man). With special previews, blockbusters, classics and never-before-seen footage, there’s something for everybody as American Airlines Presents Empire Live brings you up close and personal with the biggest movies and those who make them.
