About

Within the walls of the award-winning Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum is a remarkable new addition. A state of the art 3D film by Sony entitled ‘Viewpoint’ which is being showcased from today in their museum cinema.Viewpoint, which gives a rare and exciting insight into the factors that contribute to making The Championships so special, was produced during this year’s tournament and will be an awe-inspiring development for the Museum.

Skilfully orientated around the Men’s Singles Final of The Championships, this unique cinematic experience captures the sights, sounds and people of Wimbledon through its split narrative. The film opens on Centre Court during the final game of the tournament, focusing on the players in action. The audience is then seamlessly led from this central scene to the world of some of the rich characters that make The Championships the magnificent occasion that it is.
Weaving characters stories together to build a picture of what goes on behind the scenes, the film’s seamless transitions and compelling narrative introduces the audience to the often hidden heroes of The Championships; innovative cinematography uses 3D technology to allow the filmmakers to masterfully captivate the visual climaxes of the film.
This new cinematic technique zooms in and out of time and space itself, in a multitude of directions, seamlessly interlinking the people and places that make the day so uniquely special.

Bringing together an old technique called 'Pepper's Ghost' with new projection and filming technology, the museum is able to create an exciting way to view a scene from Wimbledon's past. In a recreation of the 1980s Gentlemen's Dressing Room, a ghost-like image of John McEnroe appears and takes you through a tour of the normally off-limits area. McEnroe reminisces about his memories about the Dressing Room, including how he first met Jimmy Connors and how he would emotionally prepare himself for matches.

The fashions of Wimbledon continue to be a point of attention and significance to the story of tennis and the new Museum will house an extensive collection of Wimbledon attire. Everything from outfits worn in the 1880s to Rafeal Nadal's dri-fit 'pirate' trousers worn in 2005 are on display.

There is also an interactive exhibit where you can feel the weight difference between male and female clothing in 1884. Interactive touch screen consoles are evenly distributed throughout the Museum hallways. These information access points make up a part of the new and exciting technologies within the Museum. Other features are the 'Get a Grip' rotating wheel of rackets; 'The Reactor' game and an archive of great past Championship matches, all of which can be enjoyed by visitors of any age.
