A classic Doctor Who story is going to screen in cinemas this summer

1970s classic Doctor Who: Genesis of the Daleks is being screened in cinemas for one night only – but in the US. Sorry, everyone in the UK.

Starring Tom Baker, Genesis of the Daleks will screen on June 11 as a 90-minute director’s cut, as opposed to the six parts it was originally broadcast in. The event will also include an interview with Baker (via EW).

Fathom Events said in a statement: “We are excited to work with our long-standing partners at BBC Studios to bring our 17th joint cinema event, Doctor Who: Genesis of the Daleks, to movie theatres across the US and for fans to see Tom Baker on the big screen.

“Our Doctor Who events are always a great opportunity for Whovians to gather at the cinema and experience their favorite content together,” it added.

Doctor Who: Genesis of the Daleks first aired on the BBC in 1975. It follows the Fourth Doctor, who, while travelling between Earth and the Ark, is transported to the planet Skaro, thousands of years in the past, on a mission to prevent the creation of the Daleks.
