Top Gun: Maverick premiere: Thursday 19 May, Leicester Square

On Monday 16 May preparations will be underway for the European Premiere of Top Gun: Maverick in Leicester Square Gardens.

The premiere will take place at both the Odeon and Cineworld with non carpet screening in Vue and Odeon Luxe. The majority of the build will be contained within the gardens, with the east and north footways hosting carpet and barriers for access into the cinemas.

An extensive build within the gardens will begin on Monday 16 May at 05:00 through the week until the main event on the evening of Thursday 19 May. The derig will commence immediately after the last guests (The Royal Family) have left the carpet continuing through the night and clear by the evening of Friday 20 May.
