We are delighted to present a special 16mm screening of the classic film When Worlds Collide (Rudolph Maté, 1951) at Cornerhouse cinema on Tuesday 4 November at 6.20pm. The dinosaurs were the last victims of a comet crashing into the Earth, but that hasn’t stopped us worrying about it happening again. This special effects-laden romp is a classic of the genre, adapting the 1932 novel by Philip Wylie and Edwin Balmer which speculates how we might deal with a catastrophic impact. Anthony Burgess’s 1982 novel The End of the World News is in part based on his unused film treatment for a later remake of this film. Those meteors are hard to avoid!
