From Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson, the groundbreaking documentary film has been created to mark the centenary of the First World War.

A nationwide live cinema event on the 16th October 2018 will see cinemas across the country simultaneously screening THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD in 2D and 3D including a live broadcast from the film’s World Premiere at the BFI London Film Festival; cinema goers will get to see red carpet arrivals and a Q&A with Peter Jackson hosted by film critic Mark Kermode as a live telecast from the premiere.

Co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary, and Imperial War Museums, in association with the BBC, THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD has been created exclusively with original footage from Imperial War Museums’ film archive and audio from BBC archives.

The internationally renowned director has combined his personal fascination with the period and his Academy Award winning directorial skills to bring the First World War to life in a way never seen before.  THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD uses the voices of the veterans combined with original archival footage to bring to life the reality of war on the front line for a whole new generation. Footage has been colourised, converted to 3D and transformed with modern production techniques to present never before seen detail.
