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 sixties cinema-going.
UCL Historians and a group of young actors have worked together on these recollections to develop an immersive cinema event which faithfully recreates the experience of cinema-going in the 1960s.
