    HG Wells and the Cinema as Time Machine. Followed by a screening of The Time Machine (2002 version)

    Rated PG

    The Time Machine (1895), H.G. Wells’ most famous scientific romance novel, anticipates cinema as a vision machine for virtual journeying through space and time. Keith explores the connection between this work of fiction and early cinema through the patent for a Time Machine ‘simulator’, which Wells devised with R.W. Paul, one of Britain’s first filmmakers, but also how the cinematic qualities of the novel have been realised on screen.ion for your listing.
