Vertigo PG The Sound of Suspense
Sun 11 March 12:00
An immortal masterwork of music composition, composer Bernard Herrmann’s peerless score for Alfred Hitchcock’s timeless thriller set such a high watermark for cinematic suspense it’s left everything that’s followed feeling a dizzyingly long way down in comparison.
Sorcerer 15 The Sound of Suspense
Sun 18 March 12:00
Sorcerer William Friedkin’s breathtakingly visceral thriller is a supremely tense study in psychological breakdown and contains a soundtrack by German electronic outfit Tangerine Dream that has the ability to ratchet-up the suspense with every turn of its synthesized screw.
The Day the Earth Stood Still U The Sound of Sci-Fi
Sun 1 April 12:00
The quintessential alien visitation tale of its era, Robert Wise’s Sci-Fi classic has had an incalculable influence on big-screen science-fiction with its state of the art effects and its otherworldly and indispensable, theremin-laced score by composer Bernard Herrmann.
Planet of the Apes PG The Sound of Sci-Fi
Sun 8 April 12:00
Composer Jerry Goldsmith’s seminal score for this sci-fi classic, about three astronauts marooned on a futuristic planet where apes rule and humans are slaves, has quite rightly passed into legend and set a standard for sci-fi film scores that has rarely been bettered.

Thu 12 April 20:00
Performing new album Skeleton Tree’s exquisitely moving compositions alongside their essential catalogue, the band’s first shows in three years provoked an ecstatic and passionate response.
Alien 15 The Sound of Sci-Fi

The iconic, dissonant soundscape to Ridley Scott’s landmark sci-fi horror is considered one of the best and most visceral of the many iconic scores by composer Jerry Goldsmith despite it suffering from a controversial post-production fallout between the pair.
Arrival 12A The Sound of Sci-Fi
Sun 29 April 12:00
Best known for blending the electronic with the classical, the recent tragic death of Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson has robbed us of one of the world's most talented contemporary exponents of the film score. His otherworldly score to Denis Villeneuve's richly textured sci-fi drama Arrival is just one of many iconic scores he composed that he will rightly be revered and remembered for.
