Tuesday 8 November, 8pm at The Crypt, The Halls, Norwich
We are excited to present REVOLUTIONS, a programme of pop-up screenings of films that shine a light on some of the diverse creative and political voices that have challenged and transformed both music and society.
Join us for a screening of cult classic FORBIDDEN PLANET (U) plus an introduction from film theory tutor and science fiction aficionado Nigel Herwin.
Featuring the world’s first electronic film score composed entirely from the home made circuits of groundbreaking composer Bebe Barron and her husband Louis. In this classic and much-emulated work of science fiction, a rescue mission to a distant planet discovers the two survivors of a spaceship that crashed 20 years before on the Forbidden Planet. One of the stranded humans has deciphered the secrets of the planet’s long-extinct inhabitants – and the technology that gave them the power to instantly destroy their civilization. Now, he refuses to share his knowledge… and one-by-one the rescuers begin to die.
Tickets £6. Limited capacity available so book in advance below.
REVOLUTIONS is a partnership project with Creative Arts East, and is supported by Film Hub South East and the BFI’s Film Audience Network.
This screening will be held in The Crypt at The Halls, Norwich. One of the oldest spaces in The Halls complex, The Crypt – with its magnificent vaulted brick ceiling – dates back to 1307.
Doors and bar open from 8pm, introduction and screening starts at 8.30pm.
