Cult classic movie nights mixed with art and science exploring earth, space and the beyond!

Be entertained and indulge your love for the out of the ordinary this October.  Sci-Fi LAB - four compelling Friday nights of sci-fi cult classic film screenings followed by cutting edge research, guest talks, performances and installations to keep the tradition of sci-fi alive.

Be part of the speculative fiction as you join our guest scientists and artists to explore the themes and “what if” of sci-fi. Grasp the relevant futuristic, scientific or technological impacts as well as the societal, historic, economic implications for the human race as Sci-Fi LAB explores all the dreams, fears and anxieties that come with sci-fi:

  • the threat of invasion; extra- terrestrial intelligence in our universe,
  • Sci -fi meets reality; unravelling DNA, genetic engineering
  • the fragility of the planet; Earth unravels
  • hostility and control; engineering challenges in space

Whether you’re a hard core sci-fi geek; a newbie beginning to explore this galaxy of wonder, or have no idea at all, bring a gang of friends each Friday in October from 7- 9pm to Sci-Fi - LAB and do as Dr Who said “hold tight and pretend it’s a plan!”

Movies include:

Friday 6 October The Fly ((1986)

Friday 13 October Gravity (2013)

Friday 20 October WALL-E (2008)

Friday 27 October The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951)
