      EVENT DETAILS
      Ray Harryhausen

      Special effects superstar Ray Harryhausen elevated stop motion animation to an art. For the first time, his collection is showcased in its entirety, and, as such, this will be the largest and widest-ranging exhibition of his work ever seen, with newly restored and previously unseen material from his incredible archive. Ray Harryhausen's work included the films Jason and the Argonauts, the Sinbad films of the '50s and '70s, One Million Years B.C. and a portfolio including children's fairy tales and commercials. He also inspired a generation of filmmakers such as Peter Jackson, Aardman Animation, Tim Burton, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and his influence on blockbuster cinema can be felt to this day.

      Connor Heaney, Collections Manager at the Ray and Diana Harryhausen Foundation, will offer a peek behind the scenes of the exhibition and provide insight into the importance of Harryhausen's work and why we continue to celebrate it today.

      Cost: 14.00
