New Immersive Exhibition Recreates Film's Desert World and Iconic Diner

If you fancy a perfectly symmetrical, whimsical and pastel-hued trip inside Wes Anderson’s forthcoming Asteroid City movie, you’re in luck.

A new, Anderson-endorsed exhibition pops up from 17 June until 8 July at 180 The Strand, brimming with original sets, costumes, props, art, sound and visuals recreating the fictional, Fifties America desert town the film is based in.

You can even eat at a replica of The Luncheonette diner, featured in the film. And naturally, there’s plenty of Anderson merch, including screenplays and vinyl records featuring tracks like Dear Alien (Who Art in Heaven).

The immersive exhibition has been curated by Universal Pictures and 180 The Strand ahead of the massively hyped release of the director’s eleventh feature film, Asteroid City, which tells the story of a Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention that is “spectacularly disrupted by world-changing events.”

The film stars the usual Wes Anderson suspects - minus Bill Murray - plus Tom Hanks, Scarlett Johansson and Bryan Cranston and it’s released on 23 June.

Wes Anderson - Asteroid City, 180 The Strand, London, WC2R 1EA. 17 June - 8 July, from 12-7pm daily. Tickets £15pp, Concessions £9, under 12s go free.
