Child psychologist Susan Harris (Julie Christie) lives with her husband, Alan (Fritz Weaver), in a home operated by a computer program. When Alan invents Proteus IV, an artificial intelligence system capable of advanced thought, his obsession with technology strains their relationship.

This special Halloween screening is presented by Science Fiction Theatre - a monthly film club dedicated to the exploration and celebration of classic science fiction cinema.

The film will be preceded by a talk from Dr Leonie Tanczer, Lecturer in International Security and Emerging Technologies at University College London, who will explore the possibility that emerging “Internet of Things” technologies such as ‘smart’ meters, locks, and cameras, are creating new risks for victims of domestic abuse.
