Baby Driver: Saturday night movie 

The 2017 summer blockbuster Baby Driver will be screened in the IBC Big Screen Auditorium in High Dynamic Range and Immersive Audio. The heist movie has a stellar cast (Kevin Spacey, John Hamm, Jamie Foxx, Lily Collins). The star of the film is the soundtrack, with the movie edited so that every car chase is in sync to the beats on the headphones of the baby-faced get-away driver (Ansel Elgort).
