The fab Science Fiction Theatre film club are back with another science-fiction (well, borderline science fiction, worryingly this film borders on science fact) screening, Steven Soderbergh's lethal epidemic thriller CONTAGION, which will also feature their signature specially designed film poster prints which will be on sale on the night.

The film will be preceded by a talk from Dr Adam Kucharski of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, who will explain the maths that help us to study and control a disease outbreak in the real world. From ebola to bird flu, knowing how a disease spreads and how it can be controlled all comes down to one number.
