Film Night: Forbidden Planet (1956)


Date(s) - 23/11/2018
7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Forbidden Planet is a 1956 American science fiction film. Shot in Cinemascope, it is considered one of the great science fiction films of the 1950s, and a precursor of contemporary science fiction cinema. The characters and isolated setting have been compared to Shakespeare’s The Tempest. It was the first science fiction film to depict humans traveling in a faster-than-light starship of their own creation. The Robby the Robot character displays a distinct personality and is an integral supporting character in the film which features a ground-breaking electronic musical score. A genuine classic.
