James Bond Day George Lazenby BFI London
Be shaken and stirred as BFI (British Film Institute) celebrate three Bond anniversaries on Sunday 29 September 2019, six days ahead of global James Bond Day. George Lazenby, the youngest James Bond actor, composer David Arnold and comedian David Walliams will be in attendance as honorary guests.

A day of 007 as BFI celebrate the work of producers Albert R ‘Cubby’ Broccoli and Harry Saltzman, who brought Ian Fleming’s James Bond to the big screen. And Aston Martin will be displaying their new On Her Majesty’s Secret Service Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Special Edition, and also a heritage Aston Martin DBS – the same as the model seen in On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) starring George Lazenby – outside the Light Box entrance in Theatre Avenue from 12noon until 6pm.

At 1.00pm, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service: 50th Anniversary Screening + Q&A with George Lazenby followed by autograph signing


Following Sean Connery as Bond was a big task, but George Lazenby brought a physicality and different energy to the role that he only played once. Ripe for re-appraisal, this classic Bond features the return of Blofeld (Telly Savalas this time around), a great John Barry score and some incredible stunt-led set pieces. This movie offers a tantalising glimpse of what might have been had Lazenby stayed longer.

After the OHMSS screening, David Walliams will do a Q&A with George Lazenby. After that, George will be on hand to sign autographs.

At 4.45pm, Moonraker: 40th Anniversary Screening + discussion with Bond composer David Arnold, writer and comedian David Walliams and more guests TBA


James Bond joins the late-70s space race in Moonraker, where he chases a missing space shuttle in a quest that will take him (unsurprisingly) around the world and up beyond the atmosphere. This final Bond outing for director Lewis Gilbert and Richard Kiel’s Jaws is full of quips, gadgets and adventure, with Roger Moore on sparkling form. After the screening, our guest panel will celebrate James Bond films through the decades.

At 8.00pm, The World Is Not Enough: 20th Anniversary Screening + intro by composer David Arnold


Pierce Brosnan’s third outing as James Bond sees him on the trail of Renard (Robert Carlyle), a former spy who’s thirsty for revenge after a botched MI6 mission left him with a bullet in his brain. With scenes set in a casino, a caviar factory and a submarine – along with some incredible action sequences – it’s another hugely enjoyable Bond. Coming full circle, the title was taken from a line in Ian Fleming’s book On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1963).

Joint ticket offer: all three films for 24 GBP. Book in person, online or by phone.
