Granite City Comic Con are extremely proud to present as part of the #harryhausen100 celebrations, the first known large screen showing of the colourised and remastered “20 Million Miles From Earth”, an evening of Q&As and gallery exhibitions from the life and times of the stop motion genius Ray Harryhausen.
Team GCCC will welcome The Ray and Diana Harryhausen Foundation to Aberdeen’s Queens Links Cineworld on the 29th of THIS MONTH! Which will celebrate both Ray’s birthday AND the 60th anniversary of 20 Million Miles to Earth!
The night will include a screening of the documentary ‘Movement into Life’ and a showing of Ray’s own remastered and colourised version of the film. There will then be question and answer sessions with a member of the foundation and a short drinks reception where you can view archives from his career. This will truly be a special and once only opportunity to see original maquettes of “Ymir” himself in Aberdeen.
The Foundation is responsible for protecting Ray’s name and body of work as well as archiving, preserving and restoring his extensive collection. They aim to promote Ray’s legacy alongside displaying his work publicly, and educating future generations about the art of stop-motion.
