Come along to a family-friendly day of classic Sci-Fi films at Bletchley Park on Saturday 8 November 2014.
There will be moon buggies, a crashed spaceship site and Sci-Fi soundscapes. With a programme of 14 films, at various locations across the Park, exploring science fiction war narratives, totalitarian dystopias and the fear of the power of science, Station X’s star attraction is the historic backdrop of the world-class heritage site.
The Station X film programme includes:
- a special pre-release Q&A preview of MONSTERS: DARK CONTINENT with director Tom Green
