King Kong (1933) on the Big Screen

Dino-Devotion Season's film night is the fantastic giant gorilla movie!

Following the successes of Godzilla and The Lost World, the Grant Museum’s film night for Dino-Devotion Season is the original 1933 King Kong. With romance, adventure, sexism, monkey-love, destruction, dinosaurs and other prehistoric beasts, the film’s tagline claims it to be “the strangest story ever conceived by man”. This classic monster movie paved the way for scores of films to follow. Film-fans, dino-devotees, ape-admirers and explorers-extraordinaire should not miss this special opportunity to see this silver screen giant in all its glory. UCL Historian of Science, Dr Joe Cain, will introduce the film, and a free glass of wine will be served in the museum following the film.
