Ray Harryhausen’s Titan Of Cinema exhibition will reopen at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art this month!
By the Gods, Ray Harryhausen’s Titan Of Cinema is re-opening!
Like so many venues, the Scottish National Gallery was forced to close its doors thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. And as a result, fans were robbed of the opportunity of experiencing the masterwork of the great Ray Harryhausen.
The Ray Harryhausen: Titan of Cinema exhibition was designed to culminate a centenary of Ray’s glorious legacy, and boasts the largest and most comprehensive exhibition of Ray Harryhausen‘s work. But very few fans got to see it before it closed its doors!
But at long last, that is all about to change. With restrictions finally easing across the land and the vaccine program turning the tide; the exhibit will finally re-open to the public on April 26th and will remain open until February 2022. And WE will be there too. Our friends at the National Gallery have invited us along for a closer look. And we are looking forward to sharing our review with you.
WHAT’S IN THE EXHIBITION
Fans can expect to experience original models from Harryhausen’s work, including the iconic skeletons from Jason and the Argonauts. The Cyclops from The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, and his memorable flying discs from Earth vs the Flying Saucers.
Guests will be able to immerse themselves in a wealth of posters, memorabilia, never-seen-before photographs, and storyboard illustrations. And the drawings and art that inspired Harryhausen’s creatures and films, which have all been retrieved from his remarkable collection.
“Film special effects superstar Ray Harryhausen helped elevate stop motion animation to an art. His innovative and inspiring films, from the 1950s onwards, changed the face of modern movie-making forever. This is the largest and widest-ranging exhibition of Ray Harryhausen’s work ever seen, with newly restored and previously unseen material from his incredible archive”
It is a joy to see Ray Harryhausen’s work finally showcased in all its glory. If you’re in the area and able to travel, I’d urge you to do go. This is one exhibition you cannot afford to miss. The Children Of The Hydra’s Teeth demand no less!
Tickets will set you back a very reasonable £14-12 (concessions available). Visitors can secure their tickets online via www.nationalgalleries.org.
