To launch our weekend dedicated to all things Steampunk, an evening celebrating the 150th birthday of H.G. Wells.
Join us in the Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium for a screening of H.G. Wells' Astounding Adventure in Dynamation; The First Men in the Moon.
Starring Edward Judd, Martha Hyer and Lionel Jeffries, with very special effects from Ray Harryhausen, including the Selenites, Moon Cows and the big-brained Prime Lunar.
SPECIAL PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
The National Space Centre is home to a Windak high-altitude pressure suit, developed for the Royal Air Force. These pressure suits can be seen in The First Men on the Moon, as well as in two Doctor Who stories: William Hartnell's final story "The Tenth Planet" and the Patrick Troughton-Era "The Wheel in Space". They also appear in the original Star Wars trilogy as the costumes for Bossk and Bo Shek.
19:00 Doors open. Cash bar and hot food available (hot dogs, soup, nachos)
20:00 – 21:45 The First Men in the Moon
