BFI Sci Fi Season: Falmouth University & The Poly

BFI Sci Fi Season: Falmouth University & The Poly

As part of the BFI’s Sci Fi Season, Days of Fear and Wonder, we’re running three double bills – programmed by Neil Fox – at our local art house cinema The Poly – booking office is here. The season opens (appropriately) on Halloween with The Fly & Demon Seed, introduced by my colleagues at Falmouth University’s School of Film & Television Dario Llinares (www.dariollinares.com) and Neil Fox (http://neitherfamenorfortune.tumblr.com). Neil takes on John Carpenter’s brilliant The Thing on 26 November, Dario tackles the classic Rollerball on 28 November and I’m helping a double bill of two of my favourite films the George Lucas debut THX1138, which I’ve written about here for Little White Lies, and the astonishing time travel mind bender Primer, from director Shane Carruth.
