SCI-FI-LONDON is the UK’s leading genre event and an internationally recognised launch pad for genre movies. At each festival we have at least a dozen UK premieres.
The festival is now in its 9th year and will take place Wed 28th April – Mon 3rd May 2010 at The Apollo Piccadilly Circus Cinema, London’s most luxurious cinema.
Do you have the stamina for our notorious all nighters?
This is the 9th year and you brave souls will be rewarded with complimentary Purbeck Ice-cream, energy drinks, tea and coffee and a packed goody bag. Scribble on the Letraset Mangawall, request some J-pop from the DJs and play a little Starcraft II, all in all it is a great night out – allnight!
