David Bowie exhibition to be beamed into cinemas

David Bowie fans across the country will have a chance to look around the sell-out exhibition at the V&A Museum without paying the cost of a ticket or even a fare to London.

On 13 August, curators and "special guests" will lead a virtual tour of the exhibition that will be beamed into more than 200 cinemas. It will be directed by Hamish Hamilton, who received a Bafta for his work on the Olympic and Paralympic ceremony coverage.

Some 200,000 people have visited the London museum to see around 300 items and photos from the Bowie archive. The exhibition draws to a close in August before moving on to Toronto in Canada and Sao Paolo in Brazil.

V&A director Martin Roth said: "Visitors have gone to great lengths for a chance to see our exhibition so we wanted to give everyone across the country one last opportunity to experience it for themselves."

Tickets will go on sale on Friday 28 June and will cost £10-£14. See whether your local cinema is participating here.
