Into the Unknown- A Journey through Science Fiction

We are pleased to announce that items from the Ray Harryhausen collection will be displayed as part of the Barbican Centre’s ‘Into the Unknown: A Journey through Science Fiction’ exhibition. This unprecedented programme will showcase an all-encompassing exploration of the genre, from its roots in classic literature, through to modern day cinema blockbusters. As such, this will be a unique opportunity to view Ray’s creative output within the wider context of the history of science-fiction.

The exhibition will run from June 3rd to September 1st 2017, and will showcase newly restored models, artwork and lost treasures from the following films:

Mighty Joe Young
Earth vs the Flying Saucers
The First Men in the Moon
One Million Years BC
