Tuesday 21 May @ The Lord Palmerston 8pm
"One of Ray Harryhausen's finest moments, the remarkable special effects are still pretty impressive even in today's CG-shaped world." - Total Film
The visual effects genius Ray Harryhausen, who died on Tuesday 7 May, was unquestionably one of the most influential figures in cinema history.
As a modest tribute we are showing his best-loved film Jason and the Argonauts as an additional screening.
The mythical tale of Jason's quest for Golden Fleece is well known but the film version is elevated to greatness by Ray Harryhausen's special effects. These include the giant Talos, two-headed Hydra and most memorably an small army of skeletons.
If you've seen the film before this is a chance for a nostalgic re-viewing. If you're new to film, prepare to be charmed and amazed by some ground-breaking special effects.
