Adam Driver stars in Francis Ford Coppola’s ambitious passion project charting the decline of a mythic civilisation, but one with obvious contemporary parallels. Straight from Cannes, see the Australian Premiere at IMAX Sydney: huge ideas on a screen to match.
Coppola has taken some big swings before (Apocalypse Now, The Godfather), but this time he’s smashed convention, expectations and style with his heady sci-fi tale about a future city beset by corruption. New Rome is a hybrid between New York and ancient Rome, complete with chariot races and togas a stone’s throw from the Chrysler Building. Driver plays an architect with the ability to pause time, but his grand vision for a more utopian society is at risk of being thwarted by ruthlessly pragmatic politicians. The actor is joined by Aubrey Plaza, Shia LaBeouf and Laurence Fishburne, and they commit fully to Coppola’s singular and operatic vision. Made on a truly grand scale, Megalopolis is one to see on the biggest screen possible.

Please note SFF Flexipasses and SFF Gift Vouchers are not able to redeemed on this special event. All tickets are sold via IMAX Sydney website and box office. 
Francis Ford Coppola's wild and delirious fever dream inspires new hope for the future of movies
David Ehrlich, IndieWire
He’s done it again, and perhaps exceeded himself. Megalopolis might be the craziest thing I’ve ever seen. And I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy every single second of it
