Part of BritBox Sundays
Sunday, November 1, 2020, 7:00 p.m.

Free virtual screening of the film and online conversation with series creators and cast members

Since its BBC premiere in 1988, the British sci-fi sitcom Red Dwarf has amassed a cult following and has grown into a franchise. Now, the legendary, Emmy-winning series reunites its original cast for a thirteenth installment: the feature-length Red Dwarf: The Promised Land. Still lost in space on a mining ship called Red Dwarf, Dave Lister (Craig Charles) is the last human in the universe, accompanied by a service bot named Kryten (Robert Llewellyn); Cat (Danny John-Jules), a descendent of Lister’s pregnant house cat; Rimmer (Chris Barrie), a hologram of Lister’s best friend; and Holly (Norman Lovett), the ship’s supercomputer. The crew’s mundane existence is soon disrupted by a fleet of humanoid cats. Join the Museum’s Associate Curator of Science and Film, Sonia Epstein, in conversation with Doug Nalyor, Red Dwarf co-creator and the film’s writer/director, as well as cast members Lovett and Llewellyn, who will discuss the evolution of the show, its production, and its influences.

Join as a Museum member for access to this event and future programming.
