Red Deer fans of Doctor Who, the British science-fiction TV series, can celebrate 50 years of memories on Saturday at the downtown branch of the Red Deer Public Library. The free celebration runs from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Snell Auditorium. There will be games, prizes and video trivia.
The BBC-produced show (the world’s longest-running sci-fi series) that follows the adventures of a time-travelling alien turns 50 years old this month.
To recognize the milestone, Cineplex and BBC America are unveiling a 50th anniversary special film in 3D called The Day of the Doctor. This 75-minute movie includes behind-the-scenes bonus content exclusive to theaters. It stars Matt Smith, David Tennant, Jenna Coleman, Billie Piper and John Hurt.
Participants at the library event who dress up as a character from the award-winning series will have their names entered in a draw for two tickets to The Day of the Doctor showing at Red Deer’s Galaxy Cineplex on Nov. 25 at 7:30 p.m.
For more information, contact Kim Whiting at the Red Deer Public Library at 403-342-9105.
