Venue: First Church of Christ, Scientist 2 – 4 University Avenue, Belfast
Date: Thursday 29 April, 2010
So you might ask yourself, why are we screening the classic TV show The Prisoner in a church in Belfast? The architect Clough Williams–Ellis designed the First Church of Christ, Scientist in Belfast, which was built in 1936–7. But his work in the village of Portmeirion in Wales is well known in popular culture as it was used as the set for the cult 1960’s TV show The Prisoner.
We will be showing a classic episode of the series followed by a talk about Clough Williams–Ellis’ work and the importance of architectural heritage in Belfast.
