Big Screen Premiere

Jon S. Baird | UK, USA | 2023 | Unclassified (15+)


Thu 30 Mar 2023


Join us in the cinema to experience the birth of Tetris in an exclusive Big Screen Premiere.

Tetris tells the unbelievable story of how one of the world's most popular videogames found its way to avid players around the globe. Tenk Rogers (Taron Egerton) discovers Tetris in 1988, and then risks everything by travelling to the Soviet Union, where he joins forces with Alexey Pajitnov (Nikita Efremov) to bring the game to the masses. Based on a true story, Tetris is a Cold War-era thriller on steroids, with double-crossing villains, unlikely heroes and a nail-biting race to the finish.

Join us in the cinema to experience Tetris on the big screen in this very special Australian premiere event direct from the film's world premiere at SXSW. Arrive early to enjoy after-hours access to our Games Lab Exhibition to learn more about gaming culture.

Tetris will be available to watch on Apple TV+ from Fri 31 March 2023.
