Film: The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms

Start: Mar 20, 2012 6:30:00 PM
End: Mar 20, 2012 9:00:00 PM

[broken image] This dinosaur classic follows a terrifying beast accidentally resurrected following nuclear testing as it rampages through America. It is said to be one of the inspirations for Godzilla. The trailers ask “Are we delving into mysteries we weren't meant to know?", “Who know what waits for us in nature's no-man's land?"

Any fan of dinosaurs, films, 1950s melodrama and monsters rising from the ocean can’t afford to miss this legendary masterpiece.

Film buff and science historian Dr Joe Cain (UCL Science and Technology Studies) will introduce the film. Part of the Humanimals Season at the Grant Museum. Admission is free and there is no need to book.
