Movie poster for Gladiator

Despite being 20 years old, this film is still outstanding and features brilliant performances by legendary Russell Crowe and a young but very commanding Joaquin Phoenix.

Gladiator is an epic and inspirational tale of a once powerful Roman general forced to become a common gladiator. 

"The general who became a slave. The slave who became a gladiator. The gladiator who defied an emperor."

Gladiator was the winner of 5 Oscars at the 2001 Academy Awards (Best Picture; Best Actor in a Leading Role; Best Costume Design; Best Sound; Best Effects, Visual Effects).

Your ticket includes entry to the Ancient Rome exhibition 

Before you watch Gladiator and experience the grit and glamour of ancient Rome brought to life within the spectacle of the Colosseum, you can explore our latest fantastic exhibition, Ancient Rome: Epic Engineers and Innovators exhibition, which is included in your ticket price (great value). Immerse yourself in the genius and determination of ancient Rome—you'll be surprised just how much we have inherited from this time. 

Just to add another touch of Italy, you'll also enjoy live entertainment from the wonderful Mr Accordion Man, Frank Miranda.

Pre-order your cheese platter for two, available for an additional $15. We'll have a cash bar available too.
