Gordon’s alive! Mike Hodges’ campy cult classic space opera Flash Gordon returns to QFT in a new 4K restoration celebrating the film’s 40th anniversary.

The moon has been pulled out of orbit. Strange natural disasters bombard the world. Baffled scientists are at a loss as to the cause of the chaos. There is only one man who can save the universe – American football hero Flash Gordon (Sam J. Jones). With New York travel-agent Dale Arden (Melody Anderson) along for the ride, Gordon travels to the mysterious Planet Mongo to confront the tyrannical Ming The Merciless (Max Von Sydow) and win an intergalactic war.

With memorable performances, particularly from the notoriously exuberant Brian Blessed as Prince Vultan, eye-popping visuals and a classic soundtrack composed, produced and performed by Queen, Flash Gordon has become the guiltiest of guilty pleasures.

“Mike Hodges’ vintage intergalactic fable delivers mayhem, madness and eye-frazzling colour.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
