Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, 3D IMAX experience


Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise. When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penélope Cruz), he’s not sure if it’s love – or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is showing in 3D at the BFI IMAX on London’s South Bank until July 19th. Click here for dates and times. Rated 12A.

Pirates: The Captain Kidd Story

Pirate flag from Pirates: The Captain Kidd Story at Museum of London DocklandsFrom Treasure Island to Pirates of the Caribbean, piracy has long been an inspiration for books, television and films. Now, in a major exhibition at the Museum of London Docklands, families and adults alike can discover the real pirates who ruled our seas over 300 years ago. Original artefacts, archaeological finds and hands-on interactives will reveal London’s links with piracy dating back to the 17th century, including the capital’s gruesome history as a place of execution for pirates. Through maps, letters and illustrations, you’ll follow the true story of the infamous Captain Kidd, who met his end at Wapping’s Execution Dock, passing into legend to shape our ideas of pirates today. Watch the trailer or find out more on the Museum of London Docklands website.

  1. My favourite quote is from Muppet Treasure Island.
    When sorting out who’s doing the dishes.
    Jim: I’ll wash

    Gonzo: I’ll dry

    Rizzo: I’ll break!

  2. Ahoy Gentleman o’ fortune, I would swim into Davy Jone’s Locker, Kidnap Jack Sparrow or just walk the plank just to win me lass this cinematic booty!

  3. Aharrr matey, the will show us da way to da fountain of youth on the south bank or my little ankle biters will decide what limb of yours is replaced with a wooden one.
    so be a good girl now and hand it over!!!

  4. Argh, I be entering again as I desperately want to get my hooks on the loot! This prize be worth it’s weight in pieces o’ eight and gold doubloons. I’ll be settin’ sail for London with me cut-throat crew tomorrow night, all bein’ well! Thank you for this oppurtunity, fair maiden.

  5. Alas I love ye Cap`n Jack. Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum, Captain Jack sparrow is really Yum Yum

  6. At Easter we took our granddaughters to Lands End and watched the 4d pirate experience featuring ‘Jill’ Hawkins’. They thoroughly enjoyed getting wet from the sea spray when the pitate dived overboard and even enjoyed the shuddering of the seats when the ship crahsed – but when the animation seemed to jump out of the screen and trhow a skull at us or wave a cutlass they were slightly less keen !

  7. Ahoy there me Matey, if ye don’t give me the booty, ye’ll be walking the plank afore ye can say shiver me timbers.

  8. aha me heartys jack have nothing on real pirate like me, walk the plank and a bottle of rum for me!

  9. Last day to enter? Well, that must be faith. I would love to win this as this would be a fantastic birthday present for me 😉 @Kahanka


    • Is it really your birthday?? Well shiver me timbers, seeing Johnny Depp on the biggest screen in Britain would be a nice present indeed….

  10. Angelica: I am starting to think you don’t know where you are going.
    Captain Jack Sparrow: Its not the destination so much as the journey.

    That ‘occasional’ craziness hides the hidden wiseness of everyone’s favourite captain!

  11. Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
    for my kids this would be so much fun
    & theyd think shiver me timbers Mum
    you are so such a clever & great one!!!

  12. Well perish an’ plague me, I verily believe this be a right rollicking competition as good as any rumfustian in my belly. An’ blow my scuttlebutt if the booty ain’t worthy of a gentleman of virtue like me to be a-tryin’ to win it. So hang me for a lewd cur if I ain’t gonna try win it fer me an’ my crew. But if I could only be a-thinkin’ what to say…. Until our courses cross again sometime.

    (An’ were you a-knowin’ that ‘Arrrgh’ when said by a pirate is said to be a ‘Newtonisation’ out of respect to Robert newton the famos celluloid Long John wotsit?)
