2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey

We're gonna go back in time to 1968 and witness one of the most influential science fiction/fantasy films of all time! Directed by Stanley Kubrick who wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke, 2001 depicts mankind's venture into the unknown brought by the appearance of mysterious monoliths throughout time and space. Filled with breathtaking models and a great selection of classical music, this is an escape into the movie history!
Note that due to the long runtime of the film (2-1/2 hours) we would like to start fairly promptly so make sure you've arrived by 7PM.
(Further note, we will be watching this of the 50th anniversary of the UK premier of the film).

The Iron Giant

The Iron Giant

Before he did The Incredibles, Brad Bird gave us an underrated gem in 1999 with his directorial debut: The Iron Giant. Based on Ted Hughes' 'The Iron Man' and set in a 50s America, the film follows Hogarth Hughes who discovers a gigantic robot (voiced by Vin Diesel). As he begins to bond with this mysterious creation, he must also find a way to hide him from a paranoid government investigator.

We're planning to honour Douglas Adams' fantastic novel by watching an adaption (in some shape or form, TBC), but the important thing is to bring a towel! Whoever brings a towel gets a little reward for their effort!
