Revelation - First Men in the Moon

Revelation - First Men in the Moon

In collaboration with the WA Museum Boola Bardip, we present the great cult treat First Men in the Moon and the special opportunity to also experience the To the Moon exhibition.

Coming out five years before people first set foot on the moon and based on the HG Wells novel, this fantastical story tells the tale of a moon shot of that year who on landing discover that they’re not the first to make the journey.
Before them and around the turn of the 20th century, Joseph Cavor (Lionel Jeffries), a brilliant British scientist, creates his own spacecraft and takes a trip to the moon, accompanied by explorers Arnold Bedford (Edward Judd) and Kate Callender (Martha Hyer).
After landing, they encounter an insect-like alien race that lives under the moon’s surface, which has an air-like atmosphere and from there the adventure begins.
In executing this deliciously told sci-fi tale, director Nathan Jiuran employs the immeasurable skill of famous stop motion animator Ray Harryhaussen who fashions some of the brilliant encounters inside the moon with alien beings which in turn take us into the special cinematic world that is 1960s sci-fi.
