Take a journey back to 1968 when Barbarella, a sci-fi adventure starring a creatively-clad futuristic Jane Fonda, was released in the UK.
To mark the 50th anniversary, The Prince Charles Cinema is hosting a 1960s night.
You will be treated to a full programme of 1968 newsreels, advertisements and cartoons, and given the chance to buy boiled sweets, shake-in-the-bag crisps and Kia Ora before the feature.
Being huge sci-fi aficionados, the cinema ushers and usherettes are also planing some surprises on the night. Duran Duran?
Barbarella will be shown on 23rd January at 8:30pm, and tickets cost £8.50 — booking here.
This immersive cinema event was created using findings from UCL’s Cultural Memory and British Cinema-going of the 1960s project financed by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The project collected memories of those who went to cinemas in the 1960s – a crucial decade in the history of cinema and Britain in general. Nearly a thousand people completed questionnaires or were interviewed to give their memories of the sixties cinema-going.
UCL Historians and a group of young actors have worked together on these recollections to develop an immersive cinema event that faithfully recreates the experience of cinema-going in the 1960s.
