Cinema can transport us far beyond our wildest imagination, says the blurb for some new vintage sci-fi screenings at the Picturehouse cinemas, which is why filmmakers have always been obsessed with re-imagining outer space.
This autumn, Picturehouse Cinemas takes you on a cinematic voyage through the most fantastical movies in the universe of film.
As anticipation levels soar for Damien Chazelle’s First Man which sees Ryan Gosling take one small step as American hero Neil Armstrong, regular Picturehouse strand Vintage Sundays takes one giant leap across a retrospective galaxy of sci fi favourites.
Vintage Sundays puts classic films back on the big screen where they belong and the new Sci Fi season will see The Right Stuff, Moon, A Trip To The Moon, Alien, Solaris, Apollo 13 and 2001: Space Odysseyscreen in succession each Sunday at Picturehouse Cinemas nationwide from September 30 for six weeks. First Man opens across the UK on 13 October.
Priced at just £5 for members, £8 for non members, make space in your diary as Vintage Sundays: Spaced lands in a Picurehouse near you.
