Join AND in a filmic foray that abandons the movie theatre in favour of pubs, galleries, safari parks and the great outdoors.
An allegoric tour de force about human attitudes toward other animals,this cult classic follows a space crew who find themselves marooned on a planet where apes rule and humankind is used for sport and experimentation. With seminal performances from Charlton Heston and Roddy McDowall and a now legendary twist ending, join us in the exceptionally apt surroundings of Knowsley Safari Park for one of the greatest sci-fi features of all time.
