THE EXHIBITION


The Largest Official Collection
of Original James Bond Vehicles



Bond in Motion is the official exhibition of James Bond vehicles that feature in the renowned film series. It is the largest display of its kind ever staged in London. 

James Bond first hit the big screen in 1962, when Ian Fleming’s 007 was introduced to cinema audiences around the world as the double o agent in Dr No. Half a century and six Bonds later, the franchise is now one of the longest running in cinema history.
 
In the main exhibition space the numerous vehicles on display include the archetypal Bond car, the Aston Martin DB5, Goldfinger’s majestic Rolls-Royce Phantom III and the unforgettable Lotus Esprit S1 submersible from The Spy Who Loved Me. Displayed alongside less predictable 007 modes of transport such as the Citroën 2CV and the Crocodile Submarine the exhibit also includes a variety of aircraft, boats and motorcycles.

These creative action vehicles play a pivotal role in all 23 movies and continue to propel James Bond to the cutting-edge of cinematic espionage. There are no replicas - every vehicle exhibited is an original used for filming. The majority are loaned from the archive of EON Productions who produce the movies and the Ian Fleming Foundation who have located and restored many of the vehicles.
 
The upper mezzanine features several examples of the creative process of the production company’s art department - never-before-seen concept art and storyboards.

Bond In Motion displays both the adrenalin-pumping high performance machinery and the unique 007 defining inventions that are essential to the continuing James Bond story.

"cultural identity"

The London Film Museum’s exhibition offers a chance to get up close and personal with some of the fantastic cars that have been a part of our lives and our cultural identity for 50 years. Personally — forgive me for this — I expect to be both shaken and stirred’

Nick Curtis
The Evening Standard

"FIFTY YEARS of history"

The exposure is incredible, the atmosphere is impressive, there is a lot of history in a single place and the beauty of Bond is that they have always been real cars, real racing, there are no images created by computer, so you have fifty years of history in a building dedicated to Bond… you’re going to love it!

The BEGINNINGS

The London Film Museum is the only film museum of its kind in Great Britain, supporting the Film Industry and the talent within it. We are self supporting, reinvesting back into the museum and within the community, creating a number of local area initiatives that also form an important part of the school curriculum. The London Film Museum (previously The Movieum) was founded and created by Jonathan Sands in February 2008 following the success of Star Wars The Exhibition, which he co-promoted at the same venue the previous year. About 50% of the museum’s collection is from his private archive. Jonathan began his career as a commercial and advertising photographer, opening his own studio at the age of 17. He moved to the famous Elstree Film Studios as resident photographer in 1997 where he met Nicholas Harrison who owned a prop and events company called Weird and Wonderful.

Read More + Starting in 1998 Jonathan worked with Nick Harrison on special projects which included The Aliens Resurrection party at BAFTA and a grand event for the Prince of Malaysia on the set of Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace at Leavesden Studios. Sadly, Nick Harrison passed away at the age of 37, but his legacy lives on. Jonathan bought the collection and company in 2001 and built it up into a full service production company, creating attractions like The Seven Deadly Sins at Thorpe Park and the Chelsea Football Club Centenary Museum at Stamford Bridge. He was invited to help co-ordinate a tie-in at the Monaco Grand Prix between Lucasfilm and Red Bull, which included the transportation and installation of full size space-crafts, and the co-ordination of the actors in costume during the event.

2006-2009

In 2006 Lucasfilm requested that the 30th Anniversary Exhibition be hosted in London and Jonathan was approached by the promoter to host the event at County Hall, where he had negotiated a short term license to present the exhibition. Star Wars -The Exhibition opened on May 4th 2007 and was a great success and voted Britain’s No1 family attraction by the Telegraph. Weird and Wonderful continued to service the film industry with props and set pieces but was falling victim to the CGI technologies which required less physical objects, coupled with a diminishing themed events market. When Star Wars closed and moved on in January 2008, Jonathan set about moving his entire collection into County Hall under the banner of The Movieum of London, which opened to a fantastic reception in February 2008, following the signing of a 25 year lease on 35,000 sq.ft of the first floor.

Read More + However, the team are determined to constantly improve the offering and to create a film museum that is worthy of flying the flag for  the industry and the individuals working within it. Everything is produced in-house and in a similar way to a film, from the initial concept, script, art direction, set construction, production and editing. In March 2008 Jonathan was introduced to Rick Senat, an ex-Senior Executive at Warner Bros. and a pillar within the British film industry. In March 2009, Rick became Chairman and Jonathan Chief Executive. Rick then formed the Movieum's Advisory Group which included David Robinson (Chaplin’s Biographer and well respected Film Critic), Leslie Hardcastle OBE, (creator of MOMI), Linda Ayton (Fred Zinnemann’s P.A.) and Professor Ian Christie (Birkbeck University of London).The first two key decisions to be passed by the new Advisory Group were the rebranding of the name to London Film Museum and to create the Chaplin Exhibition.

2010-PRESENT

In January 2010 The Movieum officially changed its name to the London Film Museum and embarked on curating a number of exhibitions that included Charlie Chaplin - The Great Londoner and Ray Harryhausen, Myths & Legends. With the South Bank location having attracted many thousands of visitors over the 6 years, the lease interest was finally sold to Merlin Entertainments in December 2013. In August 2010, property company Capital and Counties Plc began negotiations with the Directors to create a new London Film Museum as part of their plans in Covent Garden and planning permission was approved by Westminster City Council in November of the same year, paving the way for a multi million pound development of the former Flower Cellars, a 25,000 sq.ft facility to build alongside the famous all new Balthazar restaurant.

Read More + The new State of the art facility opened its doors on April 21st 2012 with an iconic exhibition called Magnum on Set, with images by Magnum photographers taken on the sets of films such as 'The Seven Year Itch', 'Rebel Without A Cause', 'Moby Dick' and 'Zabriskie Point'. The photographs – which include Eve Arnold's shots of Marilyn Monroe and Robert Capa's images of Ingrid Bergman, Billy Wilder and John Huston. In January 2014, production began on the Bond in Motion exhibition in partnership with Eon Productions opening a new chapter in the London Film Museum's history.

Based in the heart of Covent Garden, London, the team at the LFE has over 15 years of industry experience. This experience is derived both from events and an involvement in film production. Consequently, we have a unique blend of creative flair and knowledge that helps us to conceptualise highly original visitor experiences and execute all ideas from start to finish.

Our close connection with the London Film Museum means we have worked with them for many years and our extensive knowledge of the venues means that if you are hosting an event with them we can really help you to get the most out of the spaces. We also regularly put our expertise to use in other venues and are available to work throughout the UK and Europe. We have recently worked in venues such as The Dorchester Hotel, Excel, Claridges, Earls Court, The Grovesnor House and Olympia. 

Should you commission the services of our production department we can allocate you a designer to help you create a unique and unforgettable event. Your designer can help you with every stage of the production - right from the initial design through to the event itself where we will ensure that every element is carried through in minute detail to ensure a slick, stress-free and unforgettable event. Alternatively, all our equipment can be dry hired along with a technician/crew as required - we can be involved in the creative process and execution of your production as much or as little as suits each client.


 


LIGHTNING SOUND STAGE DESIGN FURNITURE RENTAL AND PROP HIRE
Whatever the occasion, lighting is extremely important. It can be used to transform a simple conference into a beautiful setting or add to the excitement of a huge award ceremony. The right lighting sets the mood for an event.

All of our team have a wealth of knowledge which enables them to select the equipment best suited to your requirements.

We have extensive contacts in the industry and so have the opportunity to work with some of the very best sound engineers in the business. We are also able to source all the latest technology should our own not be ideal for a particular event. We fully appreciate that whatever the size of your event it cannot succeed if the sound is not of the highest standard and we are therefore passionate about working hard to deliver the very best.

We have the ability to provide you with anything from a simple, blank-canvass stage to a beautiful,
complicated design that can be a focal point of your event.

Whatever your vision may be, our production designers will ensure that the stage does not disappoint.
