British Film Institute's Sci-Fi Days of Fear and Wonder...

Just in case you thought that the UK's Sci-Fi celebration begins and ends today, with the re-release of Stanley Kubrick's classic 2001: A Space Odyssey, think again. Part of the British Film Institute, the current BFI Southbank season continues it's nod to 'the original blockbuster genre', with screenings of some of the most iconic film titles of the last sixty years. From The Fly, to On the Waterfront, to Ornette: Made In America - there's something for every paranormal palette showing from now until 30 December.

Until the next...
