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.
Daleks Invasion Earth 2150AD
With each regeneration the Doctor seems to get younger and younger. In the ‘60s, the Doctors were in their sixties and in this 1966 feature film adaptation of the popular TV series it is Hammer Horror meister Peter Cushing playing the Doctor.
Invasion Earth 2150 AD is the sequel to Cushing’s first outing as the Doctor in Dr Who and the Daleks. Arriving in the future, the Doctor and his companions discover the Daleks have taken over the Earth (or at least London and the Home Counties), destroyed the city and enslaved the population to work in a mine that is excavating towards the Earth’s core.
With the aid of an underground resistance,the Doctor uses his scientific knowledge of the Earth’s magnetism to defeat the Daleks.
This feature film, sponsored by Sugar Puffs (look for the product placement!), is a great nostalgia trip for children of the ‘60s, and a chance for new fans of the Doctor to go back to a simpler time when the Daleks were the scariest thing on TV.
Tickets are free. But you need to register.
