Ray Harryhausen

Jason And The Argonauts (1963)Any Londoner fancy a trip to Bradford? No? Let Coxsoft Art tempt you. For some strange reason The National Museum of Photography, Film and Television hangs out in Bradford. Its Lumière Lecture 2006 is all about Ray Harryhausen. Remember the monsters in Jason and the Argonauts? Clash of the Titans ring a bell? Getting interested? Tony Dalton, co-author of Ray Harryhausen, An Animated Life and The Art of Ray Harryhausen, will deliver the lecture on 3 September at 7.00pm in Pictureville Cinema. This will be followed by an on-stage interview with the man himself: special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen. Tickets at £5 (£3.30 for silver surfers) seem well worth the price. The NMPFT exhibition Myths and Visions: the Art of Ray Harryhausen continues in Gallery One until 24 September 2006, showing his concept drawings and other artwork. There is also a season of his movies.
