Audiences will get the chance to see Andy Muschietti’s adaptation of Stephen King’s novel It before anyone else as Odeon cinemas welcome fans to midnight screenings. The screenings will be complemented by an exclusive poster to mark the occasion.

Based on Stephen King’s bestselling 1986 horror novel, It will teach a whole new generation to be afraid of clowns. When children start disappearing in the US town of Derry, a group of young kids are forced to face their biggest fears when they square off against evil clown Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård), whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
Film fans across the world have been excitedly anticipating the new adaptation of Stephen King’s classic 1986 novel – with the first trailer featuring the iconic Pennywise quickly rising to No.1 on YouTube’s trending videos and racking up more than 197 million views globally within 24 hours of release.
Sylvia Woon, Interim Commercial Director at Odeon UK & Ireland, said: “The highly-anticipated return of Pennywise to the big screen promises to send chills down guests’ spines, which is why we wanted to give our bravest fans the chance to be amongst the first to catch the film at Odeon. We hope to see as many guests through our doors as possible at midnight – if they dare.”
