Science Fiction Theatre in the UK is a monthly film club dedicated to the exploration and celebration of classic science fiction cinema.

Launched in 2013, SFT has hosted over 50 events at different venues across London. Its founder, Graham Ainsley, decided that was a bloody good reason to produce a book so, accordingly, he assembled a team of writers and graphic designers to run through the first 50 films, accompanied by original poster art for each one.

But what has become apparent from this book is the startling legacy of sci-fi cinema – or, at the very least, SFT’s ability to ferret out the really good ones and present them in an ongoing program that, I believe, is truly exciting.

What other films are included? Following are a few pages that demonstrate the content of this book is not only meaty but beautiful as well.
