Gravity 2D (12A) + A Trip to the Moon (U)

Outdoor Cinema at the Sculpture Court

This summer, we’re showing films where no cinema has gone before, with our first-ever outdoor, on-site cinema surrounded by the Barbican’s dramatic architecture.

Alfonso Cuarón’s visually spectacular space-set thriller is a beautiful and frightening look at the mysteries of space, and the strength of the human spirit.

Astronaut Dr Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) and engineer Matt Kowalski (George Clooney) are completing a routine space station repair, when they hear from Mission Control (Ed Harris) that something has gone terribly wrong. Stranded in space, the pair must to draw on all their expertise and ingenuity. But their task is dangerous, and soon enough, the difficulty of their mission becomes apparent.

Captivating from start to finish, the awesome effects of Gravity are aided by a fantastic score, composed by Steven Price, cinematography by Oscar-winner Emmanuel Lubezki, and visual effects by Framestore.

We precede the screening with a showing of Georges Méliès’ hugely influential space fantasy from 1902, A Trip the Moon (Le Voyage dans la Lune).
