A weekend not to be missed for sci-fi fans across the UK…
Join us for outdoor interstellar cinema against the backdrop of the Lovell telescope.
Watch the Skies! will bring you to the darkest space of the universe as we make contact with the unknown – expect tales of artificial life, dark stars, extra-terrestrial encounters and drama on a planetary scale.
You’ll be able to take in screenings of 2001: A Space Odyssey and Alien, hear talks from specialists at Jodrell Bank on space probes, extra-terrestrial life and exploration of the invisible universe, and enjoy two exclusive world premieres and commissions from Manchester based Soup Collective and acclaimed US electronic musician Oneohtrix Point Never.
Details of special discount codes for staff and students to enter on Eventbrite can be found on staffnet.
