Robots at the Movies

Wed 28th June, 2017, 6pm to 7pm

Automata, robots and androids have been a creation and fascination for humans over centuries.

From Maria (Metropolis, 1927), R2D2 and C3PO (Star Wars, 1977), WALL-E (2008), The Terminators (1984, 1991, 2003) to Transformers (2007), they have been portrayed as our friends, adversaries, from alien to almost human, invaders and enslavers or as our saviours and trusted companions.

These portrayals in the movies have reflected and perhaps influenced our opinion of them.

Join us for an amusing evening reviewing our relationship with these technologies as reflected in their portrayal in the movie industry.
