Innerspace: Free Outdoor Screening in Millennium Square on Friday 1st September 2017Posted on: 31 Aug 2017
80s sci-fi comedy Innerspace will get a free outdoor screening on Big Screen Bristol in Millennium Square on Friday 1st September 2017. Check out the trailer below!
The Dennis Quaid, Meg Ryan and Martin Short starring adventure flick tells the story of a marine who is scientifically miniaturized and accidentally injected into the body of a hapless, hypochondriac grocery store cashier. Pursued by unscrupulous saboteurs intent on getting their hands on the device that shrank him, repeated attempts to retrieve the marine are repeatedly thwarted by the would-be-thieves.
Directed by Joe Dante (The Howling, Gremlins, Matinee) and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, this 1987 film was in fact inspired by the 1966 sci-fi movie Fantastic Voyage. It's a winning, exuberant concoction of action, adventure, comedy and sci-fi that still has plenty of plucky charm and exciting sequences.

The projector starts cranking away at 8pm and is being screened as Fortnight #3 of At-Bristol's Festival of What If? - the particular conundrum posing this week's intriguing teaser 'What if I could see inside myself?'. The film is rated PG (General viewing, but some scenes may be unsuitable for young children).
Limited deckchair seating will be available on a first come first served basis, but film buffs staying for the duration are welcome to bring along their own blankets, chairs or cushions and weather-appropriate clothing.
