Manchester Science Festival and Grimm Up North in association with Manchester Cathedral present 3 nights of the best filmed science fiction screened in one of Manchester’s most epic and impressive pieces of architecture!

Building on Grimmfest’s double bills at MOSI for the 2014 Science Festival this looks to be the natural evolution, screening three very different science fiction programs each night in the main hall of the Cathedral; ranging from the space bound hilarity of RED DWARF to the dystopian action packed world of THE MATRIX to the time travelling hijinks of Marty McFly in BACK TO THE FUTURE, there is a sci-fi treat for everyone in this programme!

Monday 26th October
Tomorrow’s World Cult Double Bill
We begin our residency at the Manchester Cathedral with two bonafide cult sci-fi classics that have been homaged, loved, quoted and celebrated in great amounts since their release: THE FIFTH ELEMENT and THE MATRIX.

Tuesday 27th October

BatWhilst I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, nothing can beat a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. I don't do 3D movies so put the red and green spex away!
