London's historic thoroughfare Burlington Arcade is home to some of the menswear tailoring brands that have played a huge role in establishing James Bond as the suave, stylish spy known to the world. To celebrate the release of the majorly anticipated film, James Bond: No Time To Die, in cinemas from 30 September, Burlington Arcade has curated a stunning 007 installation in the iconic thoroughfare.

The installation welcomes you into the Arcade with arches atop the grand entrance to the building. A special OMEGA inspired carpet in the same design as the NATO strap that features on the ‘Bond watch’, runs the full-length of the arcade. Timepiece inspired mobiles hang throughout in a subtle nod to OMEGA’s Bond watch and the latest movie title – No Time To Die. As you make your way through the Arcade, you'll find an ode to The Man with the Golden Gun and as your get to the centre of the arcade, explore the opportunity to strike a pose with the showstopping James Bond “gun barrel” in the centre.

Entrance


No Time To Die is the first Bond film to be shot with IMAX cameras. IMAX screens are known for their domed shape and their ability to make the audience feel as though they are truly drawn-in to the magic of the cinema to become part of the film. The size of IMAX screens can be up to six times larger than that of a regular cinema screen. Director Cary Fukunaga explains that shooting the 25th Bond film, and final installment featuring Daniel Craig using the IMAX camera was "unparalelled". Fukunaga comments that IMAX allows for a far larger scope and detail when shooting allowing the viewing experience to be "Extra larger than life".

Visitors can view No Time To Die at the home of film and entertainment - Leicester Square. Cineworld Leicester Square houses an IMAX with the 007 film being digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® to create a unique cinematic environment allowing moviegoers to experience more of the images with unprecedented crispness and clarity.
