SCALARAMA Strange Charm presents THE OUTER LIMITS' 50TH ANNIVERSARY
Doors 7:30pm £5 advance (click here) £6.50 on door
Scalarama is proud to “take control of all that you see and hear” with a very special event to commemorate 50 years of the classic multi-award winning science fiction anthology.
Somewhat unfairly outshone by it’s less challenging network rival Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits was a favoured by those seeking a more serious, questioning science fiction. Indeed Stephen King, from his novel Danse Macabre, noted ”for sheer hard-edged clarity of concept, The Twilight Zone could not match The Outer Limits”.
This groundbreaking series explored science, psychology, space and time travel. Truly bringing 1960s television into the modern age, it mixed dark gothic storylines, incredible guest star performances, clever special effects and imaginative creature creations asking the audience to question more about the nature of mankind and reality. This really was the show that nightmares were made of.
Tonight, you can enjoy a unique screening of the first episode “The Galaxy Being”, 50 years to the day of its initial broadcast, as well as Harlan Ellison’s classic time-travel mystery “Demon With A Glass Hand” and the hugely influential “The Architects of Fear”.
Starring : Cliff Robertson, Robert Culp, Arlene Martel, Jacqueline Scott. Directors : Leslie Stevens, Byron Haskin
