About the B-Movie Fan Club curator, Robin
Robin Knowles, now 18, started programming the monthly B-Movie season at the Electric Palace Cinema when he was 13 years old.
The original idea behind the club was both to celebrate the B-Movie genre and also to create an event which provides Robin, who has autism, with a way of accessing an independent social life and make more connections.
Robin continues to be a huge fan of B-Movies and has a wealth of information on sci-fi, fantasy and B-Movies. Although Robin is reluctant to introduce the films, he is a great welcoming host and will, if engaged, give way more information than most people want! He is interested in reaching a wider audience and developing the programme.

Sunday 6 June: Invaders from Mars
A young boy discovers that space aliens are taking over the minds of earthlings in his hometown, so off he goes to find out what's a-happening: "It's not enough I'm married to a scientist, but my son's becoming one too," says despairing mother. Bubble-headed, mind controlling Martians are coming!!!
Sunday 11 July: Space Amoeba
Space probes, space amoeba, giant squid, giant crab and turtle monsters, terrible dubbing - all of this on a Pacific Island with property developers, spies and the ubiquitous newspaper reporter. Yep they raided the B-movie toy room for this one!
