What's On - June

It may be a quiet month for genre releases at the cinema, but that doesn't mean there's nothing going on.

On the contrary, in fact there's major science seasons across the Southbank, including at the BFI, plus a second helping of sci-fi films at the Prince Charles Cinema.

There's the usual eclectic mix of talks and events to discover, the odd theatrical performance, plus the science of football explained - well, that was kind of inevitable wasn't it?!

Enjoy!
