A double dose of the doctor! Two classic Dr. Who adventures return in new 4K restorations.
Dr. Who and the Daleks (1965) and Daleks’ Invasion Earth 2150 A.D. (1966) were the first time the good Doctor was ever seen in colour and on the big screen.
The films, directed by Gordon Flemyng, remain the doctor’s only cinematic outings, and feature the legendary Peter Cushing as everyone’s favourite timelord alongside a supporting cast that includes Roy Castle, Bernard Cribbins, Jennie Linden and Roberta Tovey.
This event will include a 10-minute intermission between the features.

For their second big-screen outing the Daleks are here among us, enslaving humanity in a ruined future London as part of an extraordinary plan to pilot the Earth through space… that is, unless the plucky TARDIS crew can overcome tremendous odds and defeat them.
