Movies at Madame Tussauds can accommodate up to 80 guests for seated dinners or 120 for a cocktail reception.

Guests trying out the venue for this first time earlier this week (4 May) were treated to 1970’s inspired Singapore Slings and Harvey Wallbanger cocktails in the Marvel movie zone, alongside franchise characters Captain America and Iron Man. They were then shown a private screening of a Marvel Super Heroes 4D movie before exploring the Star Wars experience.

Samantha Burton, senior events manager at Merlin Events London, said: "It’s fantastic to see our brand new event space come to life and on such an iconic day for film. Movies at Madame Tussauds celebrates some of the most memorable characters in sci-fi history and will bring a whole new immersive element to our event offering."
