Sci-Fi and Action Exhibition to take place at Moyse’s Hall Museum

Moyse’s Hall Museum, in Bury St Edmunds, is striking back with an intergalactic exhibition celebrating two special sci-fi anniversaries as well as cult-classics from the big and small screens.

Opening during half-term on October 24 and running until December 20, the 12th annual Sci-Fi and Action Exhibition will mark the 40th anniversary of the second Star Wars film “The Empire Strikes Back”, one of the greatest sci-fi movies ever to hit the big screen.

There will be a display of props and memorabilia from the movie that introduced us to Yoda, the legendary Jedi Master, AT-AT all terrain armoured walkers and a shocking family revelation that set the world talking.

In addition, it’s 40 years since “Galactica” landed in homes across the globe. This classic series was a spin-off to 1978’s “Battlestar Galactica”; displays will explore the franchise’s impact upon popular culture.

Around this time, Tom Baker was also capturing the public’s imagination as “Dr Who”; high-end screen props will reignite memories and look out for a real Dalek as you walk round the museum.

Finally meet an icon baddie – a real screen used Gremlin from the mid-1980s cult classic.
