Drive-In: Planet of the Apes

An allegoric tour de force about human attitudes toward other animals, this cult classic follows a space crew who find themselves marooned on a planet where apes rule and humankind is used for sport and experimentation.

With seminal performances from Charlton Heston and Roddy McDowall and a now legendary twist ending, the exceptionally apt surroundings of Knowsley Safari Park played host for a screening of one of the greatest sci-fi features of all time.
