THE PREDATOR POP-UP SHOP AT CINEWORLD LEICESTER SQUARE 14th & 15th SEPTEMBER

We’ve teamed-up once more with Cineworld to bring our amazing pop-up shop to Leicester Square’s biggest and best cinema, the Cineworld Imax!

To celebrate the release of The Predator, the latest in the series that began in 1987, we’ll be at the Cineworld Leicester Square over the opening weekend, offering customers a discount on all full price trade paperbacks and graphic novels. In addition to Dark Horse’s line of Predator and Aliens comics, we’ll also be offering sci-fi and horror books from a wide range of publishers, including Image and Boom!

These discounts will only be available to Cineworld customers visiting the Leicester Square site and they’ll only be available for a limited time, so book your ticket today. For an added layer of excitement, we recommend you book your ticket in Cineworld’s new 4DX screen, which immerses you into the movie with range of wonderful atmospheric effects!

You can book your 4DX or Imax experiences here and don’t forget to drop by our table Friday or Saturday for some great comics at great prices. You can follow us on Twitter and Instagram for news of all our latest events and pop-ups. In addition to this, you can catch up with Orbital’s latest movie reviews on our comic-book TV & Movie podcast, Frame by Frame.

The Art of On a Sunbeam: A Tillie Walden Exhibition 21st September – 4th October

Tillie Walden’s queer space-opera tells the story of Mia, from her life as a rebellious schoolgirl, to her time as part of the crew on the ship Aktis, out in the deepest reaches of space, rebuilding beautiful and broken down structures. Part love story, part epic space adventure, and dealing with Tillie’s now signature themes of sexuality & gender, the individual in landscape, first love and awesome cats; On a Sunbeam is a masterpiece of modern comics and arguably Tillie’s greatest artistic statement so far.

Coinciding with the release of this major new graphic novel from Avery Hill Publishing, a collection of original pages from On a Sunbeam and a selection of other classic Tillie Walden works will be on display in the Orbital Gallery from 21st September until 4th October.
