Since first gracing the silver screen in 1903, Alice has delighted audiences of all ages in more than 40 arthouse and blockbuster cinematic odysseys.
Wonderland explores how this precocious hero inspired revolutionary filmmaking, from groundbreaking special effects and animation to evocative storytelling and technological development.
In this must-see event, take a trip through the looking glass into an immersive, enchanted world that draws together a remarkable selection of original behind-the-scenes material.
The more curious you are, the more you’ll discover.
