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.

Join us every month for your B-Movie fix! Free space candy included with every ticket.

Woman looking scared as hairy arm holds axe above her head

All hail William Castle, the king of gimmicks! In this schlock creature B-movie, Castle made his cinema seats vibrate at the point of 'Tingle'.

Will your seat vibrate??*

* No it won't.

See this film as part of our 20th anniversary - we're screening a collection of cinema-related films during October to celebrate the magic of cinema!
