War of the Worlds (1953) on the Big Screen

Classic film night and introduction.

Exploring one of the greatest mysteries – whether we are alone – this classic adaptation of the HG Wells novel tells the story of a devastating alien attack on Earth. When all our weapons, including atomic bombs, cannot deter the invaders, how will the human race be saved? At the height of Cold War frenzy, this film has a lot more to it than just alien occupations.

Film buff and science historian Dr Joe Cain (UCL Science and Technology Studies) will introduce the film. Following the film join us for a free glass of wine in a private view of the Museum. Part of the Natural Mystery Season at the Grant Museum. Admission is free and there is no need to book.
