Join us at the Science Museum for an after-hours movie night like no other as we show The Terminator and RoboCop in our IMAX theatre.
This double bill presents arguably the two most iconic robots in screen history, beginning with James Cameron’s original 1984 thriller The Terminator, featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger as the time-travelling robot assassin stalking the streets of downtown LA. The second film in the double bill is Paul Verhoeven’s biting 1987 satirical sci-fi classic RoboCop. Set in a dystopian future Detroit, RoboCop tells the story of a police officer killed in the line of duty, brought back to life as a chrome-plated, indestructible, cyborg crime-fighting machine.
This screening event will be introduced by Dr Emine Yilmaz, Faculty Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute and Associate Professor at UCL’s Department of Computer Science, who will examine the question: Could Skynet come true?
