In this rare screening of one of cinema's early science-fiction legends, Rocket Ship packs 13 episodes of the 1936 live action Flash Gordon series into a futuristic flight-of-fantasy movie.

Flash, along with his constant companion Dale Arden, encounters villain Ming the Merciless on rogue planet Mongo as it threatens to come crashing into Earth!

Ming the Merciless' fantastic costume is featured in the Hollywood Costume exhibition.

Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances our screening on Sunday 11 August at 10.30am has been cancelled.
