Welcome to Durham University Science Fiction and Fantasy Society! We meet weekly on Wednesday evenings to watch Science Fiction films and TV on a big screen, followed by a trip to the pub to discuss the films, other films, alternate timeline theories, logical and scientific inaccuracies or whatever takes our fancy.
We also have an extensive book library for use by members that might, one day, be catalogued!
And returning this year after a long hiatus is our society run fanzine, Metamorphoses! Available now in the sidebar!
For further details, or to be added to the mailing list for weekly updates, contact us on email@example.com
Check below for details of our new exec!
Wednesday 8th May, ER142
The walking Dead: Days Gone Bye
The first episode of the critically acclaimed post-apocalyptic horror series. After an armed pursuit, Sherriff's deputy Rick Grimes is shot in the chest, regaining consciousness in a seemingly abandoned hospital. We will be watching this episode in black and white.
Star Wars: The Old Republic Opening Cinematic
By popular demand, the opening cinematic to the world's fastest growing MMO.
A spaceship full of malnourished aliens stops directly above Johannesburg. In the face of civil unrest between the aliens and the locals, the government orders them confined to District 9. Filmed in a South Africa still feeling the effects of apartheid, the film is inspired by and parallels historical events.
