NCM Fathom Events and BBC AMERICA are thrilled to celebrate 50 years of the world’s longest-running Sci-Fi series Doctor Who with an explosive RealD 3D presentation of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special: The Day of the Doctor. This extraordinary one-night event will take place in select cinemas nationwide on Monday, November 25 at 7:30pm (local time) with additional show times being added in select locations.

The Doctors embark on their greatest adventure in this 50th Anniversary Special: in 2013, something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him.

Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith and Tenth Doctor David Tennant star in the highly-anticipated 50th Anniversary Special “The Day of the Doctor” alongside Jenna Coleman, Billie Piper and John Hurt.

But that’s not all. After the special, be sure to stay in your seats for “The Day of the Doctor: Behind the Lens,” a special behind-the-scenes featurette featuring interviews with the stars as well as writer and showrunner, Steven Moffat.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to join fellow Whovians in experiencing the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special as a RealD 3D special event! 2D showings available in select locations.

The Doctor

On November 23, 1963, a television legend was born. In flickering black and white, two school teachers stumbled upon the home of their strange pupil Susan: a Police Box in a junkyard.

A Police Box that was bigger inside than out, a ship that could travel anywhere in space and time, piloted by a mysterious person known only as the Doctor. The journey they began that night has spanned a whole universe, encompassed ten changes of leading actor, and has entertained, educated, and thrilled millions around the world.

Now, known and loved around the world, in high definition and 3D, Doctor Who turns 50. With a devoted audience of 80 million fans in over 200 countries, the series has twice been honored by Guinness World Records as the longest running and the most successful science-fiction series in the world.
