When Worlds Collide (1951) on the Big Screen


J.Z. Young Lecture Theatre | Anatomy Building (link Map)
Gower Street | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Open

When a distant star is discovered to be on a collision course with the Earth, the end of the world looks near, very near, merely eight months away. The only possible solution- build a giant spaceship to take the lucky few (and some sheep) to the newly discovered planet of Zyra in the hope to save our species from extinction. What could possibly go wrong?

Historian of Biology and film-buff Professor Joe Cain (UCL Science and Technology Studies) will introduce the film which is followed by a free drinks reception in the Museum.
