The Day the Earth Stood Still (U, 92 mins) is a sci-fi classic that tells the story of an unexpected arrival on planet earth — the alien Klaatu and a giant robot Gort - who are hoping to save humanity from itself.

When it was released in 1951 it was only six years after the end of World War II, and the world was at the height of a new Cold War arms race, so the public's fear of nuclear extinction was very real.

Before the movie begins you will be treated to a presentation by Professor Noel Sharkey who will explore the character of Gort, and how he compared to the usual 1950s depiction of robots, and the killer war machines that are still being developed by superpowers even now.
