DJ set (22:00-23:00) and film screening (23:00)

In a change to the advertised program, AV pioneer DJ Cheeba (Solid Steel) dishes out his own Sci-fi inspired set. This will still be followed by a screening of the 1953 film War of the Worlds.

After the set join us for a late night (23:00) screening of the 1953 film, which set the standard for alien movies for decades to come. Invaders from another planet target a small Californian town, landing with their manta-ray spaceships armed with cobra-like probes that shoot white-hot disintegration rays (it scooped the Oscar® for Best Special Effects). It's a work of frightening imagination that still packs a punch even today - so join us for a fantastic invasion of music and film!

Film tickets: £5.50 full / £4.00 concessions. Ticket holders to War of the Worlds get priority entry to the DJ set.
