Taking the movie’s many pandemic-related delays into account, we’ve all had quite some time to prepare for this weekend’s opening of No Time to Die. So, hopefully, you’ve already secured your tickets to a showing at an IMAX screen near you.
But if you’re looking for even more James Bond outside of the cinema, a few spots nationwide have some immersive, limited-run 007 experiences to offer.
If you’re on the West Coast
Just across the street from the newly opened Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles is the Petersen Automotive Museum, which, as the name would suggest, is devoted entirely to cars. That makes it a perfect match for “Bond in Motion,” a temporary exhibit of some of the coolest customized vehicles from the 007 universe—no fewer than 35 of them. Among those are the Lotus submarine from The Spy Who Loved Me, the Aston Martin DB5 from GoldenEye and one of only 10 Aston Martin DB10 cars that were made specifically for Spectre.
If you’re on the East Coast
While the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles certainly has the upper hand in terms of car collections, an Aston Martin DB5 is also on display in New York, as part of the 007xSPYSCAPE activation. But the immersive experience has much more than horsepower. Projection mapping and larger-than-life installations promise to transport you into the world of 007, as does a replica of Q’s lab and all the secret-agent gizmos and gadgets inside.
A few rooms are devoted to showcasing some stellar behind-the-scenes Bond moments, too, ranging from original artworks by Oscar winner and longtime 007 production designer Ken Adam to the special effects of Skyfall’s explosion-filled finale. Tickets are available for reservation all the way through the end of December.
