Sci-Fi Film Season at The British Museum
The BFI’s Sci-Fi blockbuster project will blast off from the forecourt of the British Museum in spectacular style with a trilogy of science fiction classics screening over three successive nights.

Each evening will be accompanied by special guests and the invitation for viewers to participate in the terrestrial fun.
