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.
See Robin sharing the history of the B Movie Fan Club screenings - video via Facebook:
Sunday 29 August: Horror Express
While travelling on the Trans-Siberian Express, an anthropologist and his rival must contain the threat posed by the former's cargo: a prehistoric ape which is the host for a lifeform that is absorbing the minds of the passengers and crew. Starring Christopher Lee, Peter cushing, and Telly Savalas.
Sunday 26 September: Reptilicus
The phrase ‘STOP DIGGING’ comes to mind. A group of miners bring a reptile's tail back home, but scientists accidentally bring the creature back to life, as you do! Expect some bad puppetry.
