Free this weekend? Live in Northern Ireland? Then we have just the place for you…

Seven era defining blockbusters (from the Sixties to the present) are unleashed on Belfast Waterfront’s big, big screen during Movies through the Ages (Friday 10 to Sunday 12 August).

Movies through the ages brings Belfast’s biggest cinema to life with: 2001 A Space Odyssey (Friday 10 August: 8pm); The Muppet Movie (Saturday 11 August: 1pm); The Goonies (Saturday 11 August: 4pm); Reservoir Dogs (Saturday 11 August: 8pm); Wall-E (Sunday 12 August: 2pm); Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (Sunday 12 August: 6pm) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (Sunday 12 August: 9pm).

1968’s 2001 A Space Odyssey is the groundbreaking Sixties science fiction epic produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick and co-written by Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke.

Muppets creator, Jim Henson, pushed the technological capabilities of puppetry to their limits with 1979’s The Muppet Movie. Wall-E is Pixar Animation Studios’ computer-animated post-apocalyptic science fiction blockbuster.

In Steven Spielberg’s 1985 seminal action adventure, The Goonies, brothers Mikey and Brandon discover a pirate treasure map and set out on a quest to find the treasure.

Harry Potter’s amazing adventures build to an exciting conclusion during Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part’s 1 and 2 as Harry, Ron and Hermoine face their biggest battle of all to defeat the Dark Lord.

1992’s Reservoir Dogs is Quentin Tarantino’s iconic thriller about the jewellery heist which goes terribly wrong – strictly for over 18s only.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
