Still from Robocop

RoboCop: 30th Anniversary Screening

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017.

Dead or alive, you’re coming…to see RoboCop. Celebrate the 30th anniversary of Paul Verhoeven’s classic sci-fi bloodbath with a special director’s cut screening. Relive the dystopian horror of New Detroit, revel in the machiavellian ploys of Omnicorp and watch as Murphy’s Law takes hold. Once the bad guys are safely locked away, hear from a special line-up of panellists talking technological law enforcement, biomechanics and the continued prescience of the film 30 years on.

Speakers include:

Dr Dana Damian, Lecturer in the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering, The University of Sheffield

Professor Stuart Kirby, Professor of Policing and Criminal Investigation, University of Central Lancashire
