First public showing for this collection of behind-the-scenes images from the famous films.
Independent cinema network, Everyman Cinema, has partnered with the Getty Images Gallery to curate an exclusive James Bond photography exhibition, entitled The Name’s Bond, ahead of the release of franchise’s latest instalment, Spectre, next month.
Launched at the Everyman Canary Wharf on Wednesday, 7th October, this particular exhibit has released a collection of previously un-exhibited promo shots and stills behind the scenes of one the world’s longest and beloved movie franchise and the twenty-three films that have captivated an ever-growing audience.
Hosted in Crossrail Place, leading right into the wonderful Everyman Canary Wharf cinema itself, means that fans and movie goers can have the pleasure of getting acquainted with Bond before watching the new movie in the series.
The free exhibition will be hosted in Crossrail Place and will continue downstairs into the Everyman Canary Wharf cinema site itself, offering Bond fans the perfect pre-film experience before heading in to watching the eagerly anticipated twenty-fourth Bond film.
And did I mention that it’s free?

Hoss Ghonouie from Everyman Cinema, says: “From car chases and casinos to Vespers and villains, James Bond holds a place in British film culture like no other. It has been such a joy delving into Getty’s vast image archives to compile a collection that charts the ascent of James Bond over the last fifty years into a central feature of British iconography.”
The Name’s Bond exhibition will remain open to visitors from now, until the end of November. Visit the Everyman Cinema (click below) site for more info.
