For the first time, all the posters for Ray Harryhausen’s iconic films have be collected together in one book. Author and Journalist Richard Holliss will discuss how he achieved the impossible and found posters, many believed to have been missing for years. There will also be a signing of the book held at The Forbidden Planet. First Men In The Moon will receive a special high definition screening with an introduction from Harryhausen Foundation Trustee and film maker, John Walsh.

Three astronauts, returning from the moon with a manuscript of a previous discovery, track down aged discoverer who tells story of first landing. Spectacular adaptation of H. G. Wells’ novel of adventure and space travel, with eye-popping special effects by the legendary Ray Harryhausen.
