SciFi London Hammer all-nighter
Hammer's science fiction films are getting a rare cinematic outing next month as part of the Sci-Fi London Festival.
Fans can spend late night Saturday/early Sunday in a marathon screening of four classic Hammer sci-fi features, starting at midnight on 5 May.
The evening opens with Terence Fisher's Stolen Face (1952), followed by Leslie Norman's X: The Unknown (1957), Fisher's Four Sided Triangle (1953) and Spaceways (1953), which was the first British space adventure in twenty years.
The Hammer all-nighter has been organised as a fund-raiser for London's coolest radio station Resonance FM 104.4FM, which needs £60,000 to stay on air.
Fans with strong constitutions can then catch a special double bill screening of Hammer's The Quatermass Xperiment (1955) and Quatermass 2 (1957), starting at 2pm on Sunday 6 May.
All screenings take place at Apollo, West End in London, UK. Bookings can be made via telephone on 020 7451 9944, or via the festival website by clicking here.
