If you have difficulty counting (and who doesn’t), the eleventh Apollo mission was the one that first brought members of our species onto the surface of the moon, and safely back again. This is its story – and nothing but.

Told entirely in with primary material, archival sound, archival footage (including some shot in 70mm, and you don’t have to be as old as the Apollo program to remember the sheer beauty of 70mm), this is a film guaranteed to show you something you haven’t seen before as it deeply delves into a unique moment in our history.

Released 40 years ago, Ridley Scott's Alien revolutionised a genre with a dark, beautiful and iconic blend of art, science-fiction and horror that has since spawned sequels, prequels, crossovers and parodies.

Memory: The Origins of Alien documents the untold origin story behind the iconic 1979 film, which began with a 29-page script entitled ‘Memory’. Exploring the film’s roots in Greek mythology, comic books and inspiration from a range of other science-fiction authors, this documentary showcases previously-unseen material from the archives of the film’s writer, Dan O'Bannon, including story notes, behind-the-scenes footage and concept art from designer H. R. Giger.
