Evenings and Lates

Join us on Halloween for cult classic film, The Thing.


Experience the danger, drama and challenge of surviving the Arctic in our Death in the Ice film season on board our very own intrepid explorer Cutty Sark. Watch both Arctic survival, horror cult classics and recently released suspense films surrounded by the ship’s historic tea chests in the intimate setting of the Michael Edwards Studio Theatre in the Lower Hold. 

From the influential filmmaker John Carpenter, The Thing has become a cult classic since its inception in 1982.

When scientists in the Antarctic discover that a shape-shifting alien has inflitrated their camp and is assuming the form of those it kills, they set out to try and destroy the beast before paranoia consumes them and dooms mankind.
