20th Anniversary Screening

After discovering that an asteroid the size of Texas is going to impact Earth in less than a month, N.A.S.A. recruits a misfit team of deep core drillers to save the planet.

Nominated for 4 Oscars, with a musical score from Aerosmith, Armageddon was the highest-grossing film of 1998 worldwide.

Boosters café will be serving a selection of hot dogs, nachos, sandwiches, snacks, popcorn, soft and hot drinks, as well as alcoholic beverages from 18:30.
